Steps to reproduce

Fifty-four pathogen (listed in World Health Organisation (2017) and NHMRC, NRMMC (2011)) reference databases, each representing a pathogenic species was constructed by compiling full-length 16S sequences obtained from NCBI (see ESI for the reference databases). Some 16S sequences were extracted from genome sequences that were also downloaded from the same database. After removing redundant sequences, a total of 83,010 numbers of full-length pathogen sequences were categorised based on phylogeny into their respective reference databases.
