Common Analysis Differences compared to ThryveInside

At the time of writing this article, we're commonly seeing the following 2 species in uploads from Thryveinside that are not included in the Thryve results or csv.
Bilophila wadsworthia
Bifidobacterium longum

The differences we are seeing are due to:
1. Different classifiers (the machine learning algorithm that performs the classification). Biomesight uses a Bayesian classifier .
2. Different gene sequence databases.  Biomesight uses the Greengenes gene sequence database.

There is no currently no consensus in the scientific community on a preferred sequence database or classification algorithm and parameters, so these analyses differences are common when re-analyzing the same sample. These differences are one of the main reasons users upload their Thryveinside results to Biomesight.
