Woo, That was very interesting. I personally, have given up using OTU clustering at all. Thank you for your blog.
I favour oligotyping above OTU clustering. I think oligotyping is an underused strategy but it has been working very well for my research in the last few years.
I am also confident that full-length bacterial 16S sequencing together with oligotyping has strong potential to go far beyond genus classification. At least for species level. I don't have experience with strain classification using 16S but it might be promising,
Thanks for your contribution.
Well done Celia, I really like the association between sun and the gut microbiome.
Vitamin D turns out to be more a more one (the) of the most important vitamins for human and most likely for animal too.
Looking forward to here more from you
