Snowball: Strain aware gene assembly of Metagenomes

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Gregor, I; Schönhuth, A; McHardy, A C;

textabstractMotivation: Gene assembly is an important step in functional analysis of shotgun metagenomic data. Nonetheless, strain aware assembly remains a challenging task, as current assembly tools often fail to distinguish among strain variants or require closely rel... View more
