Assemble Metagenomic Reads with MetaHipMer - v2.1.0.1-357



Assemble metagenomic reads using the MetaHipMer assembly pipeline.

MetaHipMer is a de novo metagenome short-read assembler capable of scaling up to coassemble terabase-sized metagenomes. This is the KBase App for the second version of the MetaHipMer Assembler (v2.1.0.1-357).

MetaHipMer is a high performance parallelization and port of Meraculous. Version 2 (MHM2) is written entirely in UPC++ and CUDA, and runs efficiently on both single servers and on multi-node supercomputers.

This project is a joint collaboration between UC Berkeley, JGI, and CRD.

Primary authors are: Evangelos Georganas, Aydin Buluc, Steven Hofmeyr, Leonid Oliker and Rob Egan, with direction and advice from Kathy Yelick. The original Meraculous was developed by Jarrod Chapman, Isaac Ho, Eugene Goltsman, and Daniel Rokhsar.
