Quick Start

Three commands to start analysing your metagenome data:

conda install -c bioconda -c conda-forge metagenome-atlas
atlas init --db-dir databases path/to/fastq/files
atlas run

All databases and dependencies are installed on the fly in the directory --db-dir. You want to run this three commands on the example_data on the GitHub repo. If you have more time, then we recommend you to configure atlas according to your needs:

  • check the samples.tsv
  • edit the config.yaml
  • run atlas on a cluster system

Atlas is a workflow for assembly and binning of metagenomic reads
