    1. we can then shift to a better way of doing it and we knew what that was before genome sequencing

      for - quote - better approach than gene sequence as universal panecea

      quote - better approach than gene sequence as universal panecea - (see quote below)

      • Look at the high-level organization of the system
        • the living system
      • Locate what is going wrong there and then work down to find what you might do
      • at lower levels with a drug or any other kind of treatment for that matter to put it right
      • That works much better than trying to go the other way because
        • going the other way, the space for
          • possible molecules and
          • possible effects and
          • even more possible combinations of effects
        • because those complex diseases are going to require combinations of treatment
        • There are too many
        • You can't do clinical trials on all of those possibilities
        • It's just far too expensive
        • So I think we just take need to take a different approach to medical research
          • to try to benefit from the human genome sequencing
          • in a way that's different from what they originally promised

    1. Based on these results and well-established statistical theory, we advocate that investigators avoid rarefying altogether. We have provided microbiome-specific extensions to these tools in the R package, phyloseq.

    1. Detailed descriptions, assumptions, limitations and test cases of many popular statistical methods for ecological research can be found in the GUSTAME server (Buttigieg and Ramette, 2014), and in the review by Paliy and Shankar (2016).

    1. The advantages of using SSU rRNA for community fingerprinting are many: (i) This gene is found in all cellular life forms. (ii) It is a highly conserved gene, serving to a large degree as a reliable molecular chronometer. (iii) It is seldom transferred horizontally. (iv) It possesses both conserved and variable regions, so that the conserved regions can be targeted by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers and the variable ones be used as identifying markers. A handful of other genes, such as the large subunit (LSU) rRNA share these properties, but the length of ~1,500 bp of the bacterial SSU rRNA made it amenable to early molecular techniques, and the impressive body of knowledge that has since accumulated on the basis of this gene makes a switch to other markers very impractical, except in certain sub-fields such as mycology, where ITS and LSU are widely used.

      very crisp summary

    1. the majority of chimeras are believed to arise from incomplete extension. During subsequent cycles of PCR, a partially extended strand can bind to a template derived from a different but similar sequence. This then acts as a primer that is extended to form a chimeric sequence

    1. The interaction operator strict requires a strict sequencing (order) of the operands on the first level within the combined fragment
    2. The interaction operator seq means that the combined fragment represents a weak sequencing between the behaviors of the operands.
    3. Weak sequencing reduces to a parallel merge when the operands are on different sets of participants. Weak sequencing reduces to strict sequencing when the operands work on the same participant.

      weak sequencing - reduces to: - or: - parallel (simultaneous) - strict sequencing

    1. For background information on how tiling amplicon sequencing works, please prefer to the original “PrimalSeq” protocol paper as tested on Zika Quick et al. Nature Protocols and a follow-up paper Grubaugh, Gangavaparu et al. Genome Biology that focuses on in-host variation and Illumina sequencing.
