User manual || Tutorial

PARATHAA(Preserving and Assimilating Region-specific Ambiguities in Taxonomic Hierarchical Assignments for Amplicons) is a tool used for the taxonomic assignment of 16S rRNA gene sequences that takes into account the uncertainty associated with using specific variable regions/primers. PARATHAA does this by generating new primer-trimmed phylogenetic trees from reference 16S rRNA gene datasets and then determines the optimal phylogenetic distances within that tree for taxonomic labeling. PARATHAA then can use this tree to assign taxonomy to query 16S rRNA gene sequences by aligning and placing those sequences into the new primer-trimmed reference database.
