Implements iterative error correction by using modules from String Graph Assembler (SGA). SGA-ICE is an iterative error correction pipeline that runs SGA in multiple rounds of k-mer-based correction with an increasing k-mer size, followed by a final round of overlap-based correction. By combining the advantages of small and large k-mers, this approach corrects more errors in repeats and minimizes the total amount of erroneous reads.

I used SGA-ICE to correct illumina shotgun sequencing before de novo genome assembly. The results was in accordance with my expectation. I recommend !
