MetaMLP: A Fast Word Embedding Based Classifier to Profile Target Gene Databases in Metagenomic Samples.


-mers. MetaMLP is able to identify a slightly larger number of reads compared with DIAMOND (one of the fastest sequence alignment methods), as well as to perform accurate predictions with 0.99 precision and 0.99 recall. MetaMLP can process 100M reads in ∼10 minutes on a laptop computer, which is 50 times faster than DIAMOND.
