Update distances

December 1, 2020 at 10:07am
Dear MiGA team, I used TypeMAT and NCBI Prok about a year ago on my genome assembly to obtain information on taxonomy. When I revisited the results page I chose to click on 'update/recalculate distances', because apparently the database had been updated. Now the closest relatives are much less similar than the ones found before. Closest relatives were ~90% ANI before. Now I get relatives from different families with ~55% AAI. What is going wrong? I also created an account, resubmitted the sequence, and it results in the same, less related, closest relatives.
Thank you in advance, Marjolein

For one reason or another, I have my original closest relatives back in my rerun today, just with very slightly different ANIs. So my problem seems to be solved.
