Researchers Develop Binning Approach to Obtain Genomes of Rare, Uncultured Bacteria from Metagenomes | GenomeWeb

Researchers from Aalborg University in Denmark have developed a sequence-independent binning approach to assemble genomes of rare, uncultured bacteria from metagenomic samples — a technique that can be used to better understand the bacteria species present in environmental samples.

The method was published online this week in Nature Biotechnology. Its developers claim that it improves upon previous binning approaches for metagenomics.
