Closes gaps with a preassembled contig set or a long read set (i.e., error-corrected PacBio reads). GMcloser uses likelihood-based classifiers calculated from the alignment statistics between scaffolds, contigs, and paired-end reads to correctly assign contigs or long reads to gap regions of scaffolds, thereby achieving accurate and efficient gap closure. An accompanied package, GMvalue, is a tool to determine misassembly sites in contigs and scaffolds.
