Optimize Bacterial or Archaeal Binned Contigs using DAS Tool - v1.1.2



Optimize bacterial or archaeal genome bins using a dereplication, aggregation and scoring strategy

DAS Tool is an automated method that integrates the results of a flexible number of binning algorithms to calculate an optimized, non-redundant set of bins from a single assembly.

Implemented for KBase by Sean Jungbluth(

DAS Tool takes metagenome "bins" generated from the same assembly, but using different genome binning tools, and optimizes their content using a dereplication, aggregation and scoring strategy.


Assembly Object: The Assembly object is a collection of assembled genome fragments, called "contigs". These are part of the input file required for DAS Tool to run. Currently only a single Assembly object is accepted by the DAS Tool App.

Input BinnedContig Object Names: The BinnedContig Objects represents the different genome binning tool output binned contigs to be used for input to DAS Tool.

Output BinnedContig Object Name: The output BinnedContig Object is produced by DAS Tool.


Output Object:The BinnedContig Object represents the directory of binned contigs created by DAS Tool. This object can be used for downstream analysis.

Output Bin Summary Report:The number of bins produced, the number of contigs that were binned and the total number of contigs in the assembly.

Downloadable files: The enitre output of the DAS Tool run may be downloaded as a zip file.
