MaxBin2 is the next-generation of MaxBin that supports multiple samples at the same time. MaxBin is a software for binning assembled metagenomic sequences based on an Expectation-Maximization algorithm. Users could understand the underlying bins (genomes) of the microbes in their metagenomes by simply providing assembled metagenomic sequences and the reads coverage information or sequencing reads.
- Version: 2.2.7
- Added: March, 2020
See versions of maxbin2 which are available:
$ module avail maxbin2
Load one version into your environment and run it:
$ module load maxbin2/2.2.7 $ run_MaxBin.pl
Note: Please use the
-thread option to match the number of CPU threads requested in your SBATCH job parameters (default 1).
Notes from the sysadmin during installation:
$ cd /tmp $ wget 'https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/maxbin2/MaxBin-2.2.7.tar.gz?r=https%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmaxbin2%2Ffiles%2Flatest%2Fdownload&ts=1584261396' -O MaxBin-2.2.7.tar.gz $ tar xf MaxBin-2.2.7.tar.gz $ cd MaxBin-2.2.7/src $ scl enable devtoolset-7 bash $ make $ sed run_MaxBin.pl -i \ -e 's/idba_ud/idba_hybrid/' \ -e 's_IDBA\\-UD_IDBA\\-Hybrid_' $ rm src/*.o $ sudo cp -r *.hmm *.pl *.r src /export/apps/maxbin2/2.2.7 $ sudo chown -R root:root /export/apps/maxbin2/2.2.7
Note: according to the readme MaxBin2 needs IDBA-UD v1.1.1, but this version was published at least six years ago, after which time the binary was renamed to
idba_hybrid. Old tarballs are not available so I will try to see if patching
run_MaxBin.pl to use the new
idba_hybrid binary works…
