Thank you for getting back to me and for pointing out the live projects, which definitely
will provide some great resources for me.

An short description of what the Metagenomics tools do is on each of the tool forms. One
bit that many be confusing is that what is often called the "Fetch Taxonomic

hits with an assignment to the user specified taxonomic rank(s) set on the tool form. At
this stage in the analysis, hits would have already been filtered.
Rather than explaining these methods in an email, it would likely be more helpful if you
were to review the associated paper and supplemental data. This includes a tutorial that
demonstrates step-by-step the exact methods used for the published metagenomics analysis
project using these exact tools. All of this is available in Galaxy as a live project that
can be imported and experimented with.

Hopefully this helps!

in Metagenomic analysis does? Does it take all the hits above user specified cutoffs to
one query and return the taxon name if and only if all the hits have the same taxon (my
understanding)? Or, does it look at the top few hits or??? Thanks for providing some
clarification on the method.
