UCHIME vs. ChimeraSlayer
Chimera benchmark home
UCHIME and ChimeraSlayer
Below are Figs. 5 (left) and Fig. 4 (right) from
Edgar et al.
(2011). Fig 5. shows sensitivity and error rate measured on a set of
simulated chimeric sequences of length 200 with from 0% to 5% errors
introduced. The simulated chimeras have two segments. Fig 4. shows
sensitivity on a different set of simulated chimeras with two,
three or four segments (columns). Rows are divergence ranges (divergence is
the identity of the chimera with the most similar parent sequence). These
results show that UCHIME (reference database mode) has significantly better
sensitivity and lower error rate than ChimeraSlayer.
