  2. Resource Description
    OptItDBA is "a BASH script that will iteratively assemble a set of paired-end metagenomic reads." In each iteration of the optimized iterative de Bruijn graph assembly pipeline, "OptItDBA: (1) selects the optimal kmer, (2) generates a de Bruijn graph for the optimal kmer length, (3) removes the reads that map to the most highly abundant contigs from the dataset or reads that map to circular contigs, and (4) starts another iteration using all of the reads that do not map to those contigs. The loop ends when there are no highly abundant contigs meeting the criteria outlined below. At that point, all of the remaining reads will be assembled and mapped using the optimal values from the final iteration."
