Description-en: Algorithm Based Automatic Contiguation of Assembled Sequences
ABACAS is intended to rapidly contiguate (align, order, orientate),
visualize and design primers to close gaps on shotgun assembled contigs
based on a reference sequence.
.
ABACAS uses MUMmer to find alignment positions and identify syntenies
of assembled contigs against the reference. The output is then processed
to generate a pseudomolecule taking overlapping contigs and gaps in to
account. ABACAS generates a comparison file that can be used to
visualize ordered and oriented contigs in ACT. Synteny is represented by
red bars where colour intensity decreases with lower values of percent
identity between comparable blocks. Information on contigs such as the
orientation, percent identity, coverage and overlap with other contigs
can also be visualized by loading the outputted feature file on ACT.
