DBC 6.11.13 / dbOTU3
The DBC software is an alternative method for organizing sequence data into operational taxonomic units (OTUs) for next-generation sequencing technologies, such as Illumina. The focus of this method is to identify sequences that are genetically and ecologically similar to group them, while keeping ecologically distinct organisms apart, regardless of sequence identity.
dbOTU3 is a new implementation of dbOTU that is faster and more user-friendly.
