TASR 1.3 (May 20, 2011)
Support for sequence target-independent de novo assemblies
For all platforms (30.6 KB)
|Release Manager||Rene Warren|
The -i option instructs TASR to use target sequences for the sole purpose of recruiting sequence reads. If set (-i 1) the target sequences will not seed de novo assemblies and this task will be achieved by recruited reads in a target-independent fashion instead. This has the advantage of allowing the user to provide, as a target, a large reference sequence (-s) without a priori knowledge of variant bases or other structural variants.
