Keywords: High throughput sequencing - Genome assembly - Metagenomics

Functional Description: MinYS allows targeted assembly of a bacterial genome of interest in a metagenomic short read sequencing sample using a reference-guided pipeline. First, taking advantage of a potentially distant reference genome, a subset of the metagenomic reads is assembled into a set of backbone contigs. Then, this first draft assembly is completed using the whole metagenomic readset in a de novo manner. The resulting assembly is output as a genome graph, allowing to distinguish different strains with potential structural variants coexisting in the sample.
