[…] 1.9.1) (caporaso et al., 2010b). open-reference otu picking was performed using the sortmerna (version 2.0) method (kopylova et al., 2012) with a minimum identity of 97%. taxonomy was assigned using uclust (version 1.2.22) (edgar, 2010) with the greengenes database as reference (version 13.8) and sequences were aligned using pynast (version 1.2.2) (caporaso et al., 2010a). otu’s identified […]

[…] reads (q<25), and reads of < 400 bp in length were removed. reads were assigned to operational taxonomic units using the pick_open_reference_otus.py command with default parameters using the uclust method (edgar, 2010). otus occurring only once (singletons) or that failed to align using pynast were removed (caporaso et al., 2010a). relative diversity analyses were generated using […]

[…] a conservative chimera detection filter using the chimeraslayer method60. selected high quality chimera–free sequences were clustered into operational taxonomic units (otus) within reads using the uclust61 with a pairwise identity threshold of 0.97., representative sequences for each otu were picked using the “most–abundant” method and otu sequence alignment was performed with pynast59.

[…] of reads was evaluated using fastqc (http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/fastqc/)., 16s rrna sequences were sorted into otus with a criterion of 97% sequence identity using the program uclust implemented in the qiime v1.8.0 package with the furthest-neighbor clustering algorithm (6, 12). chimeric sequences were identified using uchime (13), and singletons were also eliminated […]

[…] their barcode sequence. the number of sequences presents before and after quality filtering is shown in online resource 9. clustering into operational taxonomic units (otus) was then performed using uclust at the 97% similarity level, indicative of species level (edgar 2010). the most abundant sequences were chosen as being representative of a cluster and aligned with the pynast method (caporaso […]
