DADA2: High resolution sample inference from amplicon data

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Benjamin J CallahanSusan P Holmes


Microbial communities are commonly characterized by amplifying and sequencing target genes, but errors limit the precision of amplicon sequencing. We present DADA2, a software package that models and corrects amplicon errors. DADA2 identified more real variants than other methods in Illumina-sequenced mock communities, some differing by a single nucleotide, while outputting fewer spurious sequences. DADA2 analysis of vaginal samples revealed a diversity of Lactobacillus crispatus strains undetected by OTU methods.
