This JAVA program is designed to be used for selecting prokaryotic rRNA sequences from metagenomic and metatrancriptomic shotgun libraries. The rRNASelector selects both bacterial and archaeal rRNA genes (5S, 16S and 23S). The remaining sequences can be used for non-rRNA-based bioinformatic analysis (e.g. homology search against protein databases). Additionally, for further rRNA-based analysis, the resultant sequences are trimmed to contain only rRNA coding regions.
