Scheme of workflow

Metagenome-atlas is a easy-to-use metagenomic pipeline based on snakemake. It handles all steps from QC, Assembly, Binning, to Annotation & Quantification.

The pipline is easy to use. You can start using atlas with three commands:

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

So easy a caveman could do it

Atlas has only one dependency: conda. All databases and other dependencies are installed on the fly. Atlas is based on snakemake which allows to run steps of the workflow in parallel on a cluster.
