PBSuite: Software for Long-Read Sequencing Data from PacBio


PBJelly - the genome upgrading tool. 
PBHoney - the structural variation discovery tool 

Both are contained within the PBSuite code found in downloads.

Read The Paper 

PBJelly is a highly automated pipeline that aligns long sequencing reads (such as PacBio RS reads or long 454 reads in fasta format) to high-confidence draft assembles. PBJelly fills or reduces as many captured gaps as possible to produce upgraded draft genomes. 

----- PBHoney -----
Read The Paper

PBHoney is an implementation of two variant-identification approaches designed to exploit the high mappability of long reads (i.e., greater than 10,000 bp). PBHoney considers both intra-read discordance and soft-clipped tails of long reads to identify structural variants.
