  1. Shown are species which were misclassified with the eSVMCAZY_B and the eSVMbPFAM classifiers. Contrary to previous beliefs [22], recent literature indicates in agreement with our predictions that T. curvata is a non-degrader. Furthermore, recent evidence supports that A. mirum is a lignocellulose degrader, which has not been previously described [23].
