FastQ Processing Comparisons

David M. ask me about comparing results from different providers of FastQ to Taxon. I had coded it out and was unhappy with what I saw and did not post about it . I had missed a bug and while the link was there – it would error out. That bug is now fixed, and you may use it..,

Select the ones to compare — it should be the same FastQ file for all. In this case I am processing a uBiome FastQ file (so that is a choice)

Click Compare. What you see may explain my earlier post, The taxonomy nightmare before Christmas… This is the SAME DIGITAL DATA being processed thru 4 different software applications …

MicrobiomeSight did not provide taxons so a text match up was attempted (prone to errors)
