Treephyler 1.1 – Fast Taxonomic Profiling of Metagenomes.

Treephyler 1.1

:: DESCRIPTION

Treephyler is a tool for fast taxonomic profiling of metagenomes. It combines the predictive power of tree-based and speed of signature-based approaches. Treephyler was evaluated on a real metagenome to assess its performance in comparison to previous approaches for taxonomic profiling.
