Description

A robust and fast clustering method for amplicon-based studies. The purpose of swarm is to provide a novel clustering algorithm that handles massive sets of amplicons. Results of traditional clustering algorithms are strongly input-order dependent, and rely on an arbitrary global clustering threshold. swarm results are resilient to input-order changes and rely on a small local linking threshold d, representing the maximum number of differences between two amplicons. swarm forms stable, high-resolution clusters, with a high yield of biological information.
