Dear Jethro, 

Woo, That was very interesting. I personally, have given up using OTU clustering at all. Thank you for your blog. 

I favour oligotyping above OTU clustering. I think oligotyping is an underused strategy but it has been working very well for my research in the last few years. 

I am also confident that full-length bacterial 16S sequencing together with oligotyping has strong potential to go far beyond genus classification. At least for species level. I don't have experience with strain classification using 16S but  it might be promising, 

Thanks for your contribution.

Well done Celia, I really like the association between sun and the gut microbiome. 

Vitamin D turns out to be more a more one (the) of the most important vitamins for human and most likely for animal too. 

Looking forward to here more from you
