Metagenomic Binning Service
PATRIC provides a new Metagenomic Binning Service that accepts either reads or contigs, and attempts to "bin"
the data into a set of genomes. It can be used to reconstruct bacterial and archael genomes from environmental
samples. The new service will produce reports that estimate the quality of the reconstructed genome for each bin,
as well as potentially problematic annotations for each of the derived genomes.
@ Argonne National Laboratory
The PATRIC/RAST teams will be offering a tutorial workshop May 7-9, 2018, at Argonne National Laboratory
in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. The workshop will run for three days, with the third day optional and devoted
solely to participants working on their own problems with help from the PATRIC/RAST team members.
Command Line Interface
The PATRIC Command Line Interface (CLI) includes commands and features to
1) run PATRIC services, including Genome Assembly and Annotation;
2) enable access to PATRIC workspaces;
3) manage data objects in the workspace, such as genomes; and
4) facilitate access and manipulation of data retrieved from the PATRIC databases.
Full-fledged documentation for using the CLI is available as well.
