taxMaps is an ultra-efficient, customizable and fully scalable taxonomic classification tool for short-read data designed to deal with large DNA/RNA metagenomics samples. Its performance and comprehensiveness makes it highly suitable for unbiased contamination detection in large-scale sequencing operations, microbiome studies comprising a large number of samples, and for applications where the analysis delivery time is a critical factor, such as pathogen identification from clinical or environmental samples.
