Extends long paths through a series of read-overlap graphs and evaluates them based. Telescoper uses short- and long-insert libraries in an integrated way throughout the assembly process.

The tool can be used as a finishing algorithm to extend contigs into repetitive regions and produce better assemblies for telomeres.
