Other RDP Tools of Interest

1: I think having partial sequences would have a negative impact upon classification if the reference sequence doesn’t contain the hypervariable region for the sequence to be classified. To the best of my knowledge, RDP does not exclude unapplicable reference sequences during training.

2: LPSN

3: Up-to-date

4: living tree

5: Might be of use for us for evaluating taxonomies?
