[…] The whole genome sequences were aligned with genome specific aligner: Alignathon []. Sequence alignments for each coding, intronic, and intergenic spacer regions were carried out by different alignment methods combining CLUSTALW [], MUSCLE [] and MAFFT [] to address the […]


Recovering complete and draft population genomes from metagenome datasets

PMCID: 4782286
PMID: 26951112
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-016-0154-5

[…] in a similar place to where genome assembly or whole genome alignment was a few years ago before the occurrence of comprehensive benchmarks and competitive assessment studies such as Assemblathon [], Alignathon [], and GAGE []. An example of such comparative studies in binning (and metagenomic analysis in general) is the critical assessment of metagenome interpretation initiative (CAMI; http://www […]
