CLUSTOM-CLOUD: In-Memory Data Grid-Based Software for Clustering 16S rRNA Sequence Data in the Cloud Environment

Fig 7

Comparative accuracy test of existing clustering programs.

The clustering accuracy of CLUSTOM, CLUSTOM-CLOUD, DOTUR-AL-PSA, ESPRIT-Tree, mothur-AL-PSA, mothur-AL-MSA, UCLUST and Swarm was performed based on 16S rRNA pyrosequences of a mock community that was constructed by pooled DNA of 21 human-associated prokaryotic strains with even concentration (HMP-Mock-community). The precision and recall metrics as well as their F2 values were used to compare the clustering accuracy of the eight programs at the species (A) and genus (B) levels.
