Artificial Functional Difference Between Microbial Communities Caused by Length Difference of Sequencing Reads


Homology-based approaches are often used for the annotation of microbial communities, providing functional profiles that are used to characterize and compare the content and the functionality of microbial communities. Metagenomic reads are the starting data for these studies, however considerable differences are observed between the functional profiles… (More)
