WigeoN examines the sequence conservation between a query and a trusted
reference sequence, both in NAST alignment format. Based on the sequence
identity between the query and the reference sequence, there is an
expected amount of variation among the alignment. If the observed
variation is greater than the 95% quantile of the distribution of
variation observed between non-anomalous sequences, then it is flagged
as an anomaly.
WigeoN is a flexible command-line based reimplementation of the Pintail
algorithm Appl Environ Microbiol. 2005 Dec;7112:7724-36.
WigeoN is useful for flagging chimeras and anomalies only in near
full-length 16S rRNA sequences. WigeoN lacks sensitivity with sequences
less than 1000 bp.
To run WigeoN, you need NAST-formatted sequences generated by the
nast-ier utility.
WigeoN is  part of the microbiomeutil suite.
