SLIMM: species level identification of microorganisms from metagenomes

Temesgen Hailemariam Dadi, Bernhard Y. Renard, Lothar H. Wieler, Torsten Semmler & Knut Reinert
Identification and quantification of microorganisms is a significant step in studying the alpha and beta diversities within and between microbial communities respectively. Both identification and quantification of a given microbial community can be carried out using whole genome shotgun sequences with less bias than when using 16S-rDNA sequences. However, shared regions of DNA among reference genomes and taxonomic units pose a significant challenge in assigning reads correctly to their true origins. The existing microbial community...
