Table 4 Comparison of the performance of MiCoP and MetaPhlAn2 on a mock viral community consisting of 9 species

From: MiCoP: microbial community profiling method for detecting viral and fungal organisms in metagenomic samples

  Precision Recall F1-Score Reads per minute
MiCoP 0.875 0.77778 0.82353 87629
MetaPhlAn2 1.0 0.11111 0.19999 162845
  1. MetaPhlAn2 only detects 1 of 9 species, with no false positives, while MiCoP detects 7 of 9 species with one false positive, thus profiling the community much more accurately. MetaPhlAn2 processed the reads about twice as fast as MiCoP
