Assembles a human genome on a desktop computer in a day. Minia is based on a de Bruijn graph. It combines the Bloom filter, the critical false positives structure and the marking structure. The tool performs a complete de novo assembly of human genome short reads using 5.7 GB of memory in 23 hours. It constructs a set of contigs to determine neighbors of each node. Minia produces results of similar contiguity and accuracy to other de Bruijn assemblers.
