CONTIGuator is a Python script for Linux environments whose purpose is to speed-up the bacterial genome finshing process, taking advantage of the high number of near genomes that can be used to align and resolve the relative position of the contigs obtained with the latest sequencing technologies and therefore to design a set of PCR primers in order to fill the gaps and take a step further in the finishing process. It also can be used to obtain a first insight of the genome structure using the well-known artemis comparison tool (ACT).
