MetaHipMer is a de novo metagenome short-read assembler. Version 2 (MHM2) is written entirely in UPC++ and runs efficiently on both single servers and on multinode supercomputers, where it can scale up to coassemble terabase-sized metagenomes. More information about MetaHipMer can be found in:


MHM2 is developed and maintained by the Exabiome Project at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and is supported by the Exascale Computing Project (17-SC-20-SC), a collaborative effort of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
