In its simplest form, a group of items that are put together. Think of a literal bin in which you put data. One or more bins in anvi’o form a collection.

In anvi’o, a bin may reprsent one or more contigs, or gene clusters, or any item that can be shown in the interactive interface and stored in a profile-db, pan-db, or genes-db.

Bin names become handy to specifically target a group of items to investigate via programs such as anvi-refine or anvi-split, specify a group of contigs in files such as internal-genomes, or find them in output files anvi’o generates via programs such as anvi-summarize or anvi-estimate-genome-completeness.

Since they are a part of the umbrella concept collection, information about bins are stored in various anvi’o databases, each of which can be used with the program anvi-show-collections-and-bins to see the bin content.
