Bioinformatics strategies for taxonomy independent binning and visualization of sequences in shotgun metagenomics

Comput Struct Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5148923
PMID: 27980708
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2016.11.005

[…] d into the final bins by automatic k-means clustering algorithm using Spearman distance. The approach from MetaCluster 5.0 has also been adapted for utilization in an annotation pipeline and is named MetaCluster-TA . […]


Exploiting topic modeling to boost metagenomic reads binning

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4402587
PMID: 25859745
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-16-S5-S2

[…] based on sequence overlapping. However, it can not bin reads of low abundance. MetaCluster 5.0 is an extension of MetaCluster 4.0 for handling reads of low abundance. Recently, Wang et al. developed MetaCluster-TA [], an assembly-assisted binning-based annotation tool for taxonomic annotation of reads. It assembles reads into long "virtual contigs", and then applies a method like MetaCluster 5.0 […]
