Genome Assembly Tools and Software - PART2 !!

The genome assemblers generally take a file of short sequence reads and a file of quality-value as the input. Since the quality-value file for the high throughput short reads is usually highly memory-intensive, only a few assemblers, best suited for your assembly. For the sake of computational memory saving and convenience of data inquiry, high-throughput short reads data is always initially formatted to specific data structure. Currently, existing data structure for this usage can be predominantly classified into two categories: string-based model and graph-based model.

We therefore list many genomle assembly tools here. We mainly reported for the assembly of genomes while the others are designed aiming at handling complex genomes.
