Lightweight compositional analysis of metagenomes with FracMinHash and minimum metagenome covers [article]

Luiz Carlos Irber, Phillip T Brooks, Taylor E Reiter, N Tessa Pierce-Ward, Mahmudur Rahman Hera, David Koslicki, C. Titus Brown
2022 bioRxiv   pre-print
We next frame shotgun metagenome compositional analysis as the problem of finding a minimum collection of reference genomes that "cover" the known k-mers in a metagenome, a minimum set cover problem.  ...  Finally, we show that the minimum metagenome cover can be used to guide the selection of reference genomes for read mapping. sourmash is available as open source software under the BSD 3-Clause license  ...  LCA-based approaches such as Kraken label individual k-mers based on taxonomic lineages in a database, and then use the resulting database of annotated k-mers to assign taxonomy to reads.  ...

Exploiting topic modeling to boost metagenomic reads binning

Ruichang Zhang, Zhanzhan Cheng, Jihong Guan, Shuigeng Zhou
2015 BMC Bioinformatics  
Results: In this paper, we propose a new method TM-MCluster for binning metagenomic reads. First, we represent each metagenomic read as a set of "k-mers" with their frequencies occurring in the read.  ...  The assignment of these metagenomic reads into different species or taxonomical classes is a vital step for metagenomic analysis, which is referred to as binning of metagenomic data.  ...  So we use 4-mers to represent metagenomic reads for binning. Concretely, we slide a window of length 4 to count the frequency of each k-mer in a read.  ...

2012 arXiv   pre-print
The removal of these sequences prior to assembly results in similar assembly content for most metagenomes and enables the use of graph partitioning to decrease assembly memory and time requirements.  ...  Specifically, we identify highly connected sequences which join a large proportion of reads within each real metagenome.  ...  If the same k-mers were consistently identified in other graph traversals, up to five times, the k-mer was flagged as a highly connected sequence.  ...
