Most methods for metagenomic binning rely solely on the local properties of the individual contigs. Because of this, these techniques are unable to take advantage of the connections between contigs as established by the assembly graph. In this paper, we explore Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) to leverage the assembly graph when learning contig representations for metagenomic binning. We applied four different types of GNN architectures, comparing their results on real and synthetic datasets, demonstrating encouraging results and, therefore, a promising research direction to pursue and explore.
