Description

metacluster website  
MetaCluster is an unsupervised binning method for metagenomic sequences. Existing binning methods based on sequence similarity and sequence composition markers rely heavily on the reference genomes of known microorganisms and phylogenetic markers. MetaCluster is an integrated binning method based on the unsupervised top-down separation and bottom-up merging strategy. It can bin metagenomic sequencing datasets with mixed complex species abundance ratios from the exactly equal situation to the extremely unbalance situation with consistently high accuracy.
