Table 2 Simulated metagenomic sample

From: Accurate and fast estimation of taxonomic profiles from metagenomic shotgun sequences

Species Coverage Abundance Genome Size # 16S rRNA
Bifidobacterium bifidum PRL2010 25 50% 2.2Mbp 3 copies
Bacteroides fragilis NCTC 9343 10 20% 5.1Mbp 6 copies
Staphylococcus aureus USA300 5 10% 2.8Mbp 5 copies
Enterococcus faecalis V583 5 10% 3.2Mbp 4 copies
Clostridium difficile 630 5 10% 4.2Mbp 11 copies
  1. To evaluate the performance of different approaches in estimating the bacterial composition, we have created a simulated metagenomic sample consisting of 5 species with 100bp reads. ”Coverage” indicates the depth of the coverage of the simulated reads in the simulated sample for the genomes.
