Within metagenomics, "Contig Binning" is an important step in the process of reconstructing genomes of species in mixed cultures and environmental samples. We present an interactive visual environment which enables a biologist to statistically analyze the multiple dimensions of data that are typically used during binning, and integrate and compare the results of various binning methods. Our system features a web-based parallel coordinate visualization at the front end and a R server back end for analysis and semi-supervised clustering of contig data.
