16s is basically useless for identification to genus. Since I started sequencing 16s in 1992, I have come to realize that without sequencing the full 1540 bases, it is generally misleading, and even than, it is not accurate enough to nail genus on more than 1/2 the cases. However, what is your feeling on ITS and gyrase, They seem to be far more discriminating but those databases have been decommissioned sometime ago.


The desirable thing would be that Galaxy or NCBI add a "filter conserved genes" [ ie any hit with a second choice greater than 3% distance]. Something such as that.

If you (or others)  are aware of such a thing, I'd love the here about it.

Sincerely

Removing model organisms may not be enough, you may have the same problem with, say, a Clostridium cluster IV anaerobe. I think a solution would be to first: compare to a collection of genes, e.g. get all the hits for 16S rRNA genes, RNA polymerases (conserved to quite conserved), and to e.g. ion channels and cell surface proteins. then: once a read or contig is identified as belonging to a gene family, gene, or protein domain, check within that group for species identities. Then you compare apples to apples in terms of gene conservation level Does anybody know a program that would do this efficiently from metagenomic data?

    Dear Galaxy

    When running HiSeq shot metagenomics sample from the environment
    against megablast and taxonomic representation, How do I
    filter/remove all the 16s and other conserved sequences.

    The problem if blasting a single organism that has a fraction of
    conserved sequence, the results will align with E.coli 10,000
    times more then the possible target organism. This data would be
    wrong and misleading. For example a 100mg sample that was negative
    for e coli using MUG test, give thousands of hits with galaxy.

    1) Is there a "filter conserved sequences" setting?



    2) Is there a "remove model organisms" setting?
