The mira genome fragment assembler is a specialised assembler for
sequencing projects classified as 'hard' due to high number of similar
repeats. For expressed sequence tags (ESTs) transcripts, miraEST is
specialised on reconstructing pristine mRNA transcripts while
detecting and classifying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)
occuring in different variations thereof.
The assembler is routinely used for such various tasks as mutation
detection in different cell types, similarity analysis of transcripts
between organisms, and pristine assembly of sequences from various
sources for oligo design in clinical microarray experiments.
The package provides the following executables:
Binaries provided:
* mira: for assembly of genome sequences
* miramem: estimating memory needed to assemble projects. Realised through
link to mira.
* convert_project: for converting project file types into other types
* caf2fasta, caf2gbf, caf2text, caf2html, gbf2caf and gbf2fasta are some
frequently used file converters (realised through links to convert_project)
* scftool: set of tools useful when working with SCF trace files
* fastatool: set of tools useful when working with FASTA trace files
Scripts provided:
* fasta2frag.tcl: fragmenting sequences into smaller, overlapping
subsequences. Useful for simulating shotgun sequences. Can create
subsequences in both directions (/default) and also paired-end sequences.
* fastaselect.tcl: given a FASTA file (and possibly a FASTA quality file) and
a file with names of reads, select the sequences from the input FASTA (and
quality file) and writes them to an output FASTA
* fastqselect.tcl: like fastaselect.tcl, only for FASTQ
* fixACE4consed.tcl: Consed has a bug which incapacitates it from reading
consensus tags in ACE files written by the MIRA assembler (and possibly
other programs). This script massages an ACE file so that consed can read
the consensus tags.
