 The NGS short reads were simulated from the whole genome sequences using the Exact model of MetaSim at 1 × sampling depth. The two smallest parsimony scores, the two smallest tree symmetric differences and the two highest correlation coefficients are highlighted in boldface. For CVTree, we used k = 7 for the 16S rRNA data set and k = 12 for the whole genome and NGS data sets. For d 2S, we used k = 6 for the 16S rRNA data set and k = 8 for the whole genome and NGS data sets.
