Overview of Virus Metagenomic Classification Methods and Their Biological Applications
[…] nd then filter non-viral reads. Some workflows require a custom, user-provided database for filtering, providing more flexibility but requiring more user-input. This is seen in IMSA (Dimon et al., ), VirusHunter (Zhao et al., ), VirFind (Ho and Tzanetakis, ), and MetLab (Norling et al., ), although other workflows may accept custom references as well. In total, 22 workflows filter non-virus reads […]
Challenges in the analysis of viral metagenomes
[…] or a given sequence and provides functional analyses through a graphical interface. Automatic pipelines which combine various homology search strategies to identify a final set of viral reads include VirusHunter (), a Perl script that automates viral identification using BLAST prior to assembly; MetaVir (), a web application that compares users’ datasets to published viral sequences; and VirSorter […]
Hyperexpansion of RNA Bacteriophage Diversity
[…] ns from the above studies. We constructed nucleotide databases from 454 sequencing-based reads that did not align to any known protein within the Genbank non-redundant (nr) database, as determined by VirusHunter . Illumina MiSeq-based nucleotide databases were constructed from sequencing reads that did not align to any known human or eukaryotic viral protein in the non-redundant database, at an […]
