NAME

Bio::DB::Taxonomy::silva - Use the Silva taxonomy

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Bio::DB::Taxonomy;

  my $db = Bio::DB::Taxonomy->new(
     -source   => silva,
     -taxofile => SSURef_108_tax_silva_trunc.fasta,
  );



DESCRIPTION

This is an implementation of Bio::DB::Taxonomy which stores and accesses the Silva taxonomy. Internally, Bio::DB::Taxonomy::silva keeps the taxonomy into memory by using Bio::DB::Taxonomy::list. As a consequence, note that the IDs assigned to the taxonomy nodes, e.g. sv72, are arbitrary, contrary to the pre-defined IDs that NCBI assigns to taxons. Note also that no rank names or common names are assigned to the taxa of Bio::DB::Taxonomy::silva.

The latest Silva taxonomy (2011) contains about 126,000 taxa and occupies about 124 MB of memory once parsed into a Bio::DB::Taxonomy::silva object. Obviously, it can take a little while to load.

The taxonomy file SSURef_108_tax_silva_trunc.fasta that this module uses is available from <http://www.arb-silva.de/no_cache/download/archive/release_108/Exports/>.
