MUMmer 4.0.0Beta2 / pymummer 0.11.0 – Alignment of Large-scale DNA & Protein Sequences

MUMmer 4.0.0Beta2/ pymummer 0.11.0


MUMmer is a system for rapidly aligning entire genomes, whether in complete or draft form.MUMmer can also align incomplete genomes; it can easily handle the 100s or 1000s of contigs from a shotgun sequencing project, and will align them to another set of contigs or a genome using the NUCmer program included with the system. If the species are too divergent for a DNA sequence alignment to detect similarity, then the PROmer program can generate alignments based upon the six-frame translations of both input sequences.


pymummer is Python3 module for running MUMmer and reading the output
