It might not be suitable topic to discuss here but I need your kind help and understanding.
I am working with marine samples and analysed my data using q2. What we observed is the most dominant taxa is classified as k__Bacteria;p__Proteobacteria;c__Alphaproteobacteria;o__Rickettsiales;f__Pelagibacteraceae;g__
I realized that this is the SAR11 clade proposed to be considered a distinct family, as Pelagibacteraceae, fam. nov by Thrash et al., 2011. I would like to discuss my results with previous studies but I cannot be sure that these are referring to the same. I checked gg_13_5 otus files’ taxonomy file if there is any taxa classified as SAR11 clade but I could not find. The paper published after 2011 has considered Pelagibacteraceae as SAR11 clade (Spatial and temporal patterns in the Pelagibacteraceae across an estuarine gradient by Ortmann and Santos, 2016.)
My question is if gg database considers the SAR11 clade as Pelagibacteraceae. Or is there a way that I can confirm that they are the same or not.
Sorry for this really specific question.
