NOT PEER-REVIEWED
"PeerJ Preprints" is a venue for early communication or feedback before peer review. Data may be preliminary.

Supplemental Information

Fig 1

Fig 1. Example usage of mockrobiota MC resource for marker-gene sequencing pipelines. MC datasets are selected based on multiple input criteria, including dataset metadata, sample metadata, and represented taxa. Raw data (e.g., fastq) are demultiplexed, sequences are dereplicated or clustered as OTUs, and taxonomy is assigned to representative sequences. Observed taxonomic assignments and abundances are compared to the expected composition (expected taxonomic assignments and abundances) of that MC, e.g., to generate precision and recall scores or correlations between observed/expected values.
