CLUSTOM: A Novel Method for Clustering 16S rRNA Next Generation Sequences by Overlap Minimization
Plots show the uneven distribution of 16S sequences visualized in sequence space. Coordinates are expressed in units of NW distances of sequence pairs. (A) PCA analysis of 1,000 sequences randomly sampled from the 16S–SILVA dataset showing the relationships of NW distances. (B) PCA analysis of the sequences of ten species that were the most abundantly present in the set of the 1,000 sequences displayed in (A).
