Velvet

Manipulates de Bruijn graphs (DBG) for genomic sequence assembly. Velvet is a de novo genomic assembler specially designed for short read sequencing technologies, such as Solexa or 454. It takes in short read sequences, removes errors, then produces high quality unique contigs uses paired-end read and long read information, when available, to retrieve the repeated areas between contigs. Velvet represents an approach to assembly that can leverage very short reads in combination with read pairs to produce useful assemblies.
