Cactus

:: DESCRIPTION

Cactus uses a cactus graph (aka cactus tree), a graph in which any edge is a member of at most one simple cycle, to construct a genome alignment. The aligner allows for arbitrary types of rearrangement and duplication, but favours alignments that create ‘chains’ of aligned bases.
