The Metawatt binner is a graphical binning tool that makes use of multivariate statistics of tetranucleotide frequencies and interpolated Markov models. It also performs taxonomic assessment of binning quality (via BLAST). Created bins can be edited and exported as fasta. The Metawatt is implemented in Java SWING and depends on Blast, Glimmer and the Batik library for the export of SVG graphics.

I really like the program. It was easy to install and to run. it will be good if they can support bigger samples (it runs out of memory with my 1.2 gb files) or have a batch mode to work with all samples from a folder. Overall a useful program
Great product metawatt
metawatt works great
