Table 7 Resource usage of the three methods. Peak RAM of the assembly step (metaSPAdes for Recycler and SCAPP, metaplasmidSPAdes for mpSpades) in GB. Runtime (wall clock time, in minutes) is reported for the entire pipeline including assembly and any pre-processing and post-processing required. Human metagenome results are an average across the 20 samples
