  • Omega2: metagenome assembly pipeline

    Omega found overlaps between reads using a prefix/suffix hash table. The overlap graph of reads was simplified by removing transitive edges and trimming short branches. Unitigs were generated based on minimum cost flow analysis of the overlap graph and then merged to contigs and scaffolds using m...

  • Unicycler: Hybrid assembly pipeline for bacterial genomes

    Unicycler is an assembly pipeline for bacterial genomes. It can assemble Illumina-only read sets where it functions as a SPAdes-optimiser. It can also assembly long-read-only sets (PacBio or Nanopore) where it runs a miniasm+Racon pipeline. For the best possible asse...

  • ONT assembly and Illumina polishing pipeline

    This pipeline performs the following steps: Assembly of nanopore reads using Canu. Polish canu contigs using racon (optional). Map a paired-end Illumina dataset onto the contigs obtained in the previous steps using BWA mem. Perform correction of contigs using p...

  • miniasm: very fast OLC-based de novo assembler for noisy long reads

    Miniasm is a very fast OLC-based de novo assembler for noisy long reads. It takes all-vs-all read self-mappings (typically by minimap) as input and outputs an assembly graph in the GFA format. Different from mainstream assemblers, miniasm does not have a consensus step. I...

  • dnaPipeTE: de-novo assembly & annotation Pipeline for Transposable Elements

    dnaPipeTE (for de-novo assembly & annotation Pipeline for Transposable Elements), is a pipeline designed to find, annotate and quantify Transposable Elements in small samples of NGS datasets. It is very useful to quantify the proportion of TEs in newly sequenced genomes since it does not requ...

  • COPE: an accurate k-mer-based pair-end reads connection tool to facilitate genome assembly

    An efficient tool called Connecting Overlapped Pair-End (COPE) reads, to connect overlapping pair-end reads using k-mer frequencies. We evaluated our tool on 30× simulated pair-end reads from Arabidopsis thaliana with 1% base error. COPE connected over 99% of reads with 98.8% accuracy, whic...
