[…] 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 ., particular groups of different taxonomy independent strategies lay different requirements on input data; while the sequence composition based strategies can work directly […]

[…] 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 […]
