CAMSA :: a tool for Comparative Analysis and Merging of Scaffold Assemblies


CAMSA – is a tool for Comparative Analysis and Merging of Scaffold Assemblies, distributed both as a standalone software package and as Python library under the MIT license.

Main features:

  1. works with any number of scaffold assemblies in de-novo non-progressive fashion
  2. allows to simultaneously work with scaffold assemblies obtained from any in silico and in vitro techniques, supporting multiple existing formats via built-in converters
  3. creates an extensive report with several comparative quality metrics (both on assembly level and on the level of individual assembly points)
  4. constructs a merged combined scaffold assembly
  5. provides an interactive framework for a visual comparative analysis of the given assemblies
