Summary of the analytical capability of the bioinformatics pipeline. Data can currently be preprocessed by two tools, Columbia University’s Preprocessing Procedure (CUPP) or a taxonomy analysis based on NCBI taxonomy results. Then, reads retained after the pre-processing manipulations are assembled de novo. Nearest neighbors and SNP profiling then occurs by comparing the identified contigs to NCBI databases. A reference map is created, and the SNP profile from those mapping results provides a comprehensive comparison of the taxonomical near neighbors. Finally, all the unmapped reads are extracted and used as input to the next iteration
