mlplasmids FAQ

2 minute read

Published:

mlplasmids is an R package to predict if assembled short-read contigs from E. coli, K. pneunomiae or E. faecium originated from a plasmid or a chromosome. It uses species-specific machine learning classifiers which results in high precision and accuracy. mlplasmids can be used to predict the location of, for example, antibiotic resistance genes and the plasmidome content of a population of a bacterial species. The full description of mlplasmids is available as a preprint at bioRxiv.

He suggested to omit the name of the pipeline that was unpublished and name a few other published ones instead.

Here I will show step-by-step how to draw a tree with colored tips, because, even thought the bioconductor documentation is clear and complete, I did not read about this very common visualization.
