Identifying unknown samples based on 16s rDNA sequences

This tutorial shows the user how to create and validate an identification project based on a set of reference strains and how to use this reference set to identify unknown samples. Here, we use the 16s rDNA sequences, but any type of data and also combinations of data can be used in an identification project. The functionality described in this tutorial is part of the Classifiers and Identification module.


Nucleic acid or amino acid sequences, from import and assembly over multiple alignment to annotation, SNP analysis, primer design and comparison of complete chromosomes.
