Barapost: binning of nucleotide sequences according to taxonomic annotation

Contemporary sequencing technologies, Oxford Nanopore in particular, provide a way to sequence multiple samples during single run using molecular barcodes. Specific circumstances, however, can make barcoding undesirable or unaffordable. Here, we introduce Barapost: a command-line toolkit that demultiplexes long nucleotide sequences relying on taxonomic annotation instead of barcoding.
