This report documents the binning of a Nitrospira genome from the GWW sample. See Daims et al., 2015: Complete Nitrification by Nitrospira Bacteria for further details.

Load the mmgenome package

The metagenome data is analysed using the mmgenome package.


Import data

The Rmarkdown file Load_data.Rmd describes the loading of the data and can be imported using the mmimport function. However, the preprocessed data can also be downloaded directly from figshare: Daims_GWW. Hence, here we import the prepocessed data from figshare instead.


Extract Nitrospira 6

As seen from the overview plots, there are numerous Nitrospira species. This one is located between multiple other species.
