This function determines possible thresholds from the distance matrix for an alignment.
A distance object (usually from
This function is based on the concept of the barcoding gap, where a dip in the density of genetic distances indicates the transition between intra- and inter-specific distances. Understanding your data is vital to correctly interpreting the output of this function, but as a start, the first local minimum is often a good place to start.
The value of this function is that it does not require prior knowledge of species identity to get an indication of potential threshold values.
An object of class ‘density’, which is a list containing the values
