Hi, I've just assembled few fecal RNA-seq (meta-transcriptomics) data that we sequenced and found viral contigs using virsorter. I'm wondering is there a good way to assign the taxonomy of the contigs (reliable method and comprehensive db as far as such db exists). Thanks.

  1. Blast directly
  2. IDSeq, can get viral contigs and their annotation directly.

Thanks! As for the blast option- (1) so do you suggest to just blast the contig against a db of viral RNAs? and (2) is there a comprehensive db for fecal viral RNA? I'll take a look on the IDSeq- thanks
