Genome-reconstruction for eukaryotes from complex natural microbial communities

Microbial eukaryotes are integral components of natural microbial communities and their inclusion is critical for many ecosystem studies, yet the majority of published metagenome analyses ignore eukaryotes. In order to include eukaryotes in environmental studies, eukaryotic genomes shoould be recovered from complex metagenomic samples. A key step for genome recovery is separation of eukaryotic and prokaryotic fragments. EukRep is a kmer- and SVM-based strategy for eukaryotic sequence identification from environmental samples.
