AMOS - A Modular Open Source whole genome assembler

Tool nameAMOS - A Modular Open Source whole genome assembler
Important features1. AMOS is a modular, open-source framework for genome assembly research and development, which provides integration between software modules through a centralized data store and a well defined API. 2. It has a comparative assembler, a program that can assemble a set of shotgun reads from an organism by mapping them to the finished sequence of a related organism, comparative assembler for short reads (Solexa, 454).
