  1. Three types of reads, first (r1), directly joined (dj), and inside-out (io) reads, were classified to the genus level by six classification methods using MiSeq 2 × 300 bp data. The directly joined and inside-out reads were also compared to the corresponding rearranged references (djref and ioref) respectively for classification
