Figure 6.

Comparison of the taxonomic analysis of a 16S rRNA dataset [15], computed using six different approaches: MEGAN4’s BLASTN-based SILVA analysis, the RDP website’s classifier [6], MG-RAST’s RDP-based approach [21], the SILVA website’s aligner [5], MG-RAST’s Greengene based approach and MG-RAST’s SILVA based approach targeting the SSU gene. In this figure, the bar charts on higher-rank nodes reflect the total number of reads assigned to the corresponding node or to any of the nodes in the subtree below the node.
