Assembly By Short Sequences - a de novo, parallel, paired-end sequence assembler
Released Mar 05, 2013
This release introduces new tools to merge overlapping read pairs, layout and merge contigs with perfect sequence overlap, and calculate contig contiguity and correctness metrics. Also, it includes updates to the existing documentation, bug fixes, and attempts to fill scaffold gaps with a consensus of all paths between contigs.
More about this release…
ABySS is a de novo, parallel, paired-end sequence assembler that is designed for short reads. The single-processor version is useful for assembling genomes up to 100 Mbases in size. The parallel version is implemented using MPI and is capable of assembling larger genomes.
To assemble transcriptome data, see Trans-ABySS.
