GAM-NGS: genomic assemblies merger for next generation sequencing

https://github.com/vice87/gam-ngs

GAM-NGS (Genomic Assemblies Merger for Next Generation Sequencing), whose primary goal is to merge two or more assemblies in order to enhance contiguity and correctness of both. GAM-NGS does not rely on global alignment: regions of the two assemblies representing the same genomic locus (called blocks) are identified through reads' alignments and stored in a weightedgraph. The merging phase is carried out with the help of this weighted graph that allows an optimal resolution of local problematic regions.
