GMcloser 1.5.1 / GMvalue 1.3 – Closing the Gaps in Scaffolds with Preassembled Contigs

GMcloser 1.5.1 / GMvalue 1.3

:: DESCRIPTION

GMcloser fills and closes the gaps present in scaffold assemblies, especially those generated by the de novo assembly of whole genomes with next-generation sequencing (NGS) reads.

GMvalue is a tool to determine misassembly sites in contigs and scaffolds.

SOMA 2.0 – Scaffolding using Optical Restriction Mapping

SOMA 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

SOMA (Scaffolding using Optical Restriction Mapping) is a toolbox for finishing a genome and moving it from a draft stage (the result of sequencing and initial assembly) to a complete genome. Optical Maps are global, ordered maps of restriction site locations in a genome. This information can be quite useful in scaffolding contigs from a shotgun assembly to guide the finishing process.
