[…] e packages. While Gentig has successfully been used to assemble consensus optical maps for bacterial genomes, it does not scale well to large genomes, and the software is not freely available. Beyond AGORA, which is a proof of concept implementation, no genome assembler can make use of optical mapping information. Furthermore, there are virtually no tools available for using optical maps to charac […]
