This report documents the binning of a Nitrospira genome from a pilot-scale MBR reactor used for wastewater treatment (MBR). 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_MBR. Hence, here we import the prepocessed data from figshare instead.


Extract Nitrospira 2

The combination of the coverage of sample Gel1 and MBR1 are used to make an intial extraction that includes the Nitrospira genome.

            x = "Gel1", 
            y = "MBR1", 
            log.x = F, 
            log.y = F, 
            color = "essential", 
            minlength = 5000,
