What is the meaning of "Other" category produced within UNITE+INSD all eukaryote using UCLUST


I'm analyzing nasopharyngeal mycobiome in patients.

Wthin UNITE+INSD DB using UCLUST, does "Other" mean ambiguity? (can't decide between distinct taxa)

I know "unidentifed" is present in DB, not taxonomically named yet.

And can "other" category be used as acadmic term when describing figures or tables in a paper like below?

I would like to replace the word "other" with "unclassified" because I used "others" in my figures to mean "the others excluding some taxa" like this.

Thank you :grinning:

Cool! :nose:

Can you share the command(s) you used to classify your reads? Different methods label things differently.
