  Description     : taxonomic identification and abundance profiling tool

TIPP is a modification of SEPP for classifying query sequences (i.e. reads)
using phylogenetic placement.

TIPP inserts each read into a taxonomic tree and uses the insertion location
to identify the taxonomic lineage of the read. The novel idea behind TIPP is
that rather than using the single best alignment and placement for taxonomic
identification, it uses a collection of alignments and placements and
considers statistical support for each alignment and placement.

TIPP can also be used for abundance estimation by computing an abundance
profile on the reads binned to marker genes in a reference dataset.

sepp is already packaged in Debian, and up to now, the binaries of tipp were
provided by sepp. Now the sources of sepp and tipp have been separated, which
is the reason for making this package.

tipp will be team-maintained by Debian-med team.
