  • Custom (app v1.1.0 only; prior to use, a custom reference database must be created using the 16S Metagenomics Database Creator app).
Required Input:
  • Sample Fastq files. Requirements:
    • Read Length at least 100 bp.
    • Each dataset is less than 50 Gigabases.
  • Optional: If using a custom database, the .DAT file produced by 16S Metagenomics Database Creator.
Aggregate Results:
  • PDF Aggregate report.
