Biological observations in microbiota analysis are robust to the choice of 16S rRNA gene sequencing processing algorithm: case study on human milk microbiota.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:In recent years, the microbiome field has undergone a shift from clustering-based methods of operational taxonomic unit (OTU) designation based on sequence similarity to denoising algorithms that identify exact amplicon sequence variants (ASVs), and methods to identify contaminating bacterial DNA sequences from low biomass samples have been developed. Although these methods improve accuracy when analyzing mock communities, their impact on real samples and downstream analysis of biological associations is less clear. RESULTS:Here, we re-processed our recently published milk microbiota data using Qiime1 to identify OTUs, and Qiime2 to identify ASVs, with or without contaminant removal using decontam. Qiime2 resolved the mock community more accurately, primarily because Qiime1 failed to detect Lactobacillus. Qiime2 also considerably reduced the average number of ASVs detected in human milk samples (364?±?145 OTUs vs. 170?±?73 ASVs, p?
