Reliability of taxonomic attribution using Unipept and MEGAN.
Bar graphs showing taxonomic distribution of family (top), genus (middle) and species (bottom) specific peptides identified with different DBs, according to Unipept (left) or MEGAN (right) LCA analysis. Red rectangles illustrate misassignments (i.e. attributions to taxa not actually present in the 9MM), with indication of their percentage for each DB. Bacterial taxa are represented by shades of blue, whereas yeast taxa by shades of green.
