Rosella logo

Rosella is a metagenomic binning algorithm using UMAP and HDBSCAN. It is written in Rust with a python component that handles calls to UMAP and HDBSCAN. Rosella aims to be as user friendly as possible with multiple usage modes and installation methods.

Please note that Rosella is under active development with new commits often providing much improved results. If you would like the most up to date version of Rosella please pull the code from dev branch. Hopefully releases will stabilise very soon.

Additional resources

Rosella makes use of a couple new and daunting algorithms. UMAP in particular is an amazing algorithm but might be cause for concern since it is difficult to understand how it works and what it is doing. So please look over this amazing article by Andy Coenen and Adam Pearce: Understanding UMAP
