Approaches for in silico finishing of microbial genome sequences

Genet Mol Biol
PMCID: 5596377
PMID: 28898352
DOI: 10.1590/1678-4685-GMB-2016-0230

[…] or each iteration that contains inputs to visualize the genome in Mauve and a FASTA file with the sorted contigs. The Mauve aligner can be obtained from the URL (): analyzes the genomic distance between the contig set and a reference genome and generates an ordered sequence through identifying orthologous genes. It considers the effects of the e […]


Assembling contigs in draft genomes using reversals and block interchanges

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3622642
PMID: 23734866
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-14-S5-S9

[…] draft genome based on a reference genome.Currently, several contig scaffolding tools based on the reference genomes have been developed, such as Projector 2 [], OSLay [], ABACAS [], Mauve Aligner [], fillScaffolds [], r2cat [] and SIS []. Among these contig scaffolding tools, both SIS and fillScaffolds use the concept of genome rearrangements to generate contig scaffolds for a draft genome. SIS de […]
