What is meant by proximity subsampling?

This might be a silly question. When I create a build using proximity subsampling, is the software using geographic, genetic, or some other type of proximity?


not a silly question at all… the proximity score refers to genetic proximity, i.e. it is pulling out genomes that share the same mutations as the ones in your focal set. This is meant to provide phylogenetic context for the sequences that you are analyzing.

Great! Thanks for your help!
