metaSPAdes: a new versatile de novo metagenomics assembler


While metagenomics has emerged as a technology of choice for analyzing bacterial populations, assembly of metagenomic data remains difficult thus stifling biological discoveries. metaSPAdes is a new assembler that addresses the challenge of metagenome analysis and capitalizes on computational ideas that proved to be useful in assemblies of single cells and highly polymorphic diploid genomes. We benchmark metaSPAdes against other state-of-the-art metagenome assemblers across diverse da-tasets and demonstrate that it results in high-quality assemblies.
