Bar chart demonstrating the predicted taxonomy of bacterial host genera for assembled Indian Ocean viral metagenomic data.
The area of each bar is proportional to the total number of viral reads contained in the contigs assigned to a particular host genus. Direct assignments are colored green and transitive assignments are colored blue. Direct assignments were made by assigning viral contigs to the host models built on NCBI RefSeq genomes. Transitive assignments were made by assigning viral contigs to models built on large bacterial contigs, and then assigning taxonomy to these bacterial contigs (as described in the text). Twenty top taxa in pairs of green and blue are shown according to the maximum count from either direct or transitive assignment method, respectively. If no bar is shown for one of the methods, the count was zero.
