MetaChecka is a metagenomic QA toolset. It uses sets of reference
genes to test for bin completeness and contamination


Should be as simple as

pip install MetaChecka2000

Data preparation and running MetaChecka2000

MetaChecka2000 expects to see a folder containing one or more multiple fasta
files containg assembled and binned contigs, one file for each bin.

You need to:

1. Extract genes from the contigs
2. Use hmmer to match these genes to an existing database
3. Do some counting

Use: metachecka2000 -h for more detailed help
