velvetg96 description

Velvetg96 is a program for de Bruijn graph construction, error removal and repeat resolution and construction of genomics assembly with contigs and scaffold. It requires as input Velveth output

Parent program: velvet

Velvet is a de novo genome assembly and short read sequencing alignments software.Assembly is provided by two operations. First command, velveth, hashes the reads to build the data set of k-mers. Second, velvetg constructs the de Bruijn graph using the k-mers and builds the contigs by simplification and error correction.The combination of short reads and read pairs allows Velvet to produce contigs of reasonable length and resolve small repeats.
