Method Primary source abstract: "Existing algorithms are largely optimized for speed and coverage: in contrast, [investigators] present here a software framework that focuses on a restricted set of informative gene families, using Maximum Likelihood to assign these with the best possible accuracy. This framework ('MLTreeMap', link ) uses raw nucleotide sequences as input, and includes hand-curated, extensible reference information." Please note: as of August 5th 2018 link is broken
Comments P.830 left column 2nd paragraph: "Fig. 2 shows the results of an MLTreeMap analysis [primary source] from four different phyllosphere samples: the dicotyledons Glycine max (soybean), Trifolium repens (white clover) and Arabidopsis thaliana, and the monocotyledon Oryza sativa (rice) [refs 12,19]. Proteobacteria was the most represented phylum, with members of the class Alphaproteobacteria constituting up to ∼70% of the community in each of the four phyllosphere samples."
