A toolbox for improving population genomes.

Project description

# RefineM

<b>[This project is in active development and not currently recommended for public use.]</b>

RefineM is a set of tools for improving population genomes. It provides methods designed to improve the completeness of a genome along with methods for identifying and removing contamination. RefineM comprises only part of a full genome QC pipeline and should be used in conjunction with existing QC tools such as [CheckM]( The functionality currently planned is:

<i>Improve completeness:</i> * identify contigs with similarity to specific reference genome(s) * identify contigs with compatible GC, coverage, and tetranucleotide signatures * indetify partial population genomes which should be merged together (requires [CheckM](

<i>Reducing contamination:</i> * taxonomically classify contigs within a genome in order to identify outliers * identify contigs with divergent GC content, coverage, or tetranucleotide signatures * identify contigs with a coding density suggestive of a Eukaryotic origin
