Ragout 1.2 – Tool for Reference-assisted Assembly

Ragout 1.2

:: DESCRIPTION

Ragout (Reference-Assisted Genome Ordering UTility) is a tool for assisted assembly using multiple references. It takes a short read assembly (a set of contigs), a set of related references and a corresponding phylogenetic tree and then assembles the contigs into scaffolds.
