Default MetaCV: a composition-based algorithm to classify metagenomic reads and function

We have developed a tool MetaCV to classify the very short metagenomic reads into specific taxonomic and functional groups.
Comparing to previous methods, there are some advantages:
1, Even faster and more accuracy than before methods, even for ~500 Gb Meta-Hit data, only take 2 days to classify and characterize this metagenomic data.
2, Except obtaining taxonomic information, it also provided functional enrichment of identified microorganisms.
3, Easy to use, the tool can download from
there are also some sample data for simulation.

Hi whfwind,

nice piece of tool, really like the output! I was wondering if you did a comparison with other tools, are you planning for a publication? Also, could I use this tool for 16s databases (e.g. RDP?) and obtain similar plots like the one I obtained with the testdataset? I've tried to make a database myself, but then I was missing some files like the *.ko2path and *.anno2inf.
