jMOTU 1.0.7 / Taxonerator 0.9
jMOTU is a software package for clustering barcode DNA sequence data into molecular operational taxonomic units (MOTU).
Taxonnerator is a software package for carrying out simple similarity-based annotation of clustered barcode sequence data produced by jMOTU. It generates taxonomic annotation for MOTU by BLASTing representative sequences against a preformatted database of sequences from known organisms (available from this website). Taxonnerator is useful for initial taxonomic investigation of environmental barcode datasets. For each database sequence showing significant similarity to a MOTU, taxonomic information is stored at all taxonomic levels.
