MaxBin is software for binning assembled metagenomic sequences based on an Expectation-Maximization algorithm. Users can understand the underlying bins (genomes) of the microbes in their metagenomes by simply providing assembled metagenomic sequences and the reads coverage information or sequencing reads. For users' convenience MaxBin will report genome-related statistics, including estimated completeness, GC content and genome size in the binning summary page.
Users can use MEGAN or similar software on MaxBin bins to find the taxonomy of each bin after the binning process is finished.
The most recent version of MaxBin is 2.2, which supports the analysis of coassemblies of multiple samples. It is available at this JBEI downloads sites as well as MaxBin and MaxBin 2.0 sourceforge sites.
