Binning without mapping #226
I.e., ability to bin when you only have a bunch of contigs, and no metagenomic data to map on to them.
Although clearly this is not ideal, this should be possible for benchmarking or other types of experimental purposes.
For instance, if someone wants to download N genomes from the NCBI, chop them up into random short reads, assemble them back, and try to bin them using the anvi'o interactive interface based on TNF alone, they should be able to do it.
Because the weather outside was unbearably gorgeous for my mental health, I have been working on this issue during the weekend.
I realized that the most elegant solution that works well with the codebase is to add an option to generate a blank anvi'o profile, that holds no views or data, but serves for any other purpose.
Commits to facilitate this will follow.
