We are proud to announce the preprint publication of our paper wherein we identified a misclassified species of Hungatella from the Human Microbiome Project. This project demonstrates the power of pangenome analysis to resolve species identity by clustering.
The impact of the misclassification is amplified because of numerous microbiome papers using taxonomic classifiers that are dependent on reference species. We are baking more interesting papers and will release them in the coming weeks!
