MyTaxa scan provides another means of quality checking. This is a CPU intensive task and an optional analysis that a user has to request by checking the corresponding box when submitting the analysis. MyTaxa scan scans the whole input genome in windows of ten genes and determines the phylogenetic origin of each window. MyTaxa then flags windows that deviate significantly from the genome average. When the analysis is finished, a PDF report is generated which provides information on the distance of each window from the average of the genome and options to check the origin of each window, download the corresponding genes, or other options. Windows that deviate from the genome average may represent cases of recent horizontal gene transfer or contamination. For further details on MyTaxa scan, refer to the original MyTaxa publication.
