Table 6 Parsimony score for the classification of 39 metagenomic samples using the alignment-free distances

From: Comparison of next-generation sequencing samples using compression-based distances and its application to phylogenetic reconstruction

  1. For CVTree, we used k = 6 for the full data set and k = 4 for the sub-data set in which the omnivore samples were excluded. For d 2 S , we used k = 7 for the full data set and k = 5 for the sub-data set. The two smallest parsimony scores for each data set are highlighted in boldface.
