Studies of microbiomes are booming, as well as the diversity of computational tools to make sense out of the sequencing data and the volumes of accumulated microbial genotypes. LEMMI (https://lemmi.ezlab.org) is a novel concept of a benchmarking platform of computational tools for metagenome composition assessments that introduces: a continuous integration of tools, their multi-objective ranking, and an effective distribution through software containers. Here, we detail the workflow and discuss the evaluation of some recently released methods. We see this platform eventually as a community-driven effort: where method developers can showcase novel approaches and get unbiased benchmarks for publications, while users can make informed choices and obtain standardized and easy-to-use tools.
