  1. cpu time/sample stands for the mean cpu time for each sample without paralellization. Estimated wall time/sample considers a double speed-up by using 12 threads and concurrently running all six tools (when computational resources are available the pipeline can run all tools/samples/databases at the same time). *expected number of species from isolated genomes from the gastrointestinal tract
