how to determin the taxonomy

hi Pat:

I want to give the taxonomy of the query sequences, and I read the command “classify.seqs” with the wang method. Now I have some trouble.
I can’t understand the following description"This method also runs a bootstrapping algorithmn to find the confidence limit of the assignment by randomly choosing with replacement 1/8 of the kmers in the query and then finding the taxonomy." can you give me an example for it?

thank you !
best wishes.


hi Pat :
I have another request, now I need some reference papers for Phylotype analysis, can you help me ? give me one related paper or more?

thank you very much.


you can find citations for each command by running the function name with the citation key word in the parentheses…

I will try!
