[…] ection method in a realistic setting, we tested it on a real metagenomic dataset. Since we do not know the true taxonomic label for all query sequences, we compared our results with those produced by TIPP [], a phylogenetic-tree based taxonomic assignment method. We used the RDP 2014 16S reference database for both methods []. In this dataset, there were 58,108 query sequences for which our method […]
