This release adds support for misassembly correction and scaffolding
using linked reads, using Tigmint and ARCS. (Tigmint and
ARCS must be installed separately.) In addition, simultaneous optimization
of s (seed length) and n (min supporting read pairs / Chromium barcodes)
is now supported during scaffolding.

abyss-longseqdist:

  • Fix hang on input SAM containing no alignments with MAPQ > 0

abyss-pe:

  • New lr parameter. Provide linked reads (i.e. 10x Genomics
    Chromium reads) via this parameter to perform misassembly
    correction and scaffolding using Chromium barcode information.
    Requires Tigmint and ARCS tools to be installed in addition
    to ABySS.
  • Fix bug where j (threads) was not being correctly passed to
    to bgzip/pigz
  • Fix bug where zsh time/memory profiling was not being used,
    even when zsh was available

abyss-scaffold:

  • Simultaneous optimization of n and s using line search
    or grid search [default]

SimpleGraph:

  • add options -s and -n to filter paired-end paths by
    seed length and edge weight, respectively

This minor release provides bug fixes and improved reliability for both MPI assemblies and Bloom filter assemblies on large datasets. In addition, many usability improvements have been made to the abyss-samtobreak program for misasssembly assessment.

overall:

  • Many compiler fixes for GCC >= 6, Boost >= 1.64
  • Read and write GFA 2 assembly graphs with abyss-pe graph=gfa2
  • Support reading CRAM via samtools

abyss-bloom:

  • New abyss-bloom build -t rolling-hash option, to
    pre-build input Bloom filters for abyss-bloom-dbg
  • Fix incorrect output of abyss-bloom kmers -r
    (thanks to @notestaff!)

abyss-bloom-dbg:

  • New -i option to read Bloom filter files built by
    abyss-bloom build -t rolling-hash
  • Improved error branch trimming (reduces number of
    small output sequences)
  • Fix intermittent segfaults caused by non-null-terminated
    strings

abyss-map:

  • Append BX tag to SAM output (Chromium 10x Genomics data)

ABYSS-P:

  • Increase default number of sparsehash buckets from
    200,000,000 => 1,000,000,000
  • Benefit: Allows larger datasets to be assembled without
    time-consuming sparsehash resize operations (e.g. H. sapiens)
  • Caveat: Increases minimum memory requirement per
    CPU core from 89 MB to 358 MB

abyss-pe:

  • Parallelize gzip with pigz, if available
  • Report time/memory for each program with zsh, if available
  • Fix: use N instead of n for scaffold stage,
    when set by user

abyss-samtobreak:

  • New --alignment-length (-a) option to exclude alignments
    shorter than a given length
  • New --contig-length (-l) option to exclude contigs
    shorter than a given length
  • New --genome-size (-G) option, for contiguity metrics
    that depend on the reference genome size
  • New --mapq (-q) option for minimum MAPQ score
  • New --patch-gaps (-g) option to join alignments
    separated by small gaps
  • New TSV output format with additional contiguity
    stats (e.g. L50, NG50)
  • Fix handling of hard-clipped alignments

abyss-todot:

  • New --add-complements option

abyss-tofastq:

  • New --bx option to copy BX tag from from SAM/BAM
    to FASTQ header comment (Chromium 10x Genomics
    data)

Summary

This release introduces a new Bloom filter assembly mode that enables large genome assemblies with minimal memory (e.g. 34 GB for H. sapiens with 76X coverage bfc-corrected reads). Bloom filter assemblies are currently less contiguous than the default (MPI) assembly mode but are still of high quality (e.g. 3.5 Mbp vs. 4.8 Mbp scaffold NG50 for H. sapiens). Bloom filter assembly mode is enabled by adding three 'abyss-pe' parameters (B = Bloom filter size, H = number of Bloom filter hash functions, kc = k-mer coverage threshold). See 'README.md' for an example.

This release also updates several 'abyss-pe' parameter defaults to be more suitable for large genome assemblies with recent Illumina data. In addition, ABySS 2.0.0 includes minor usability improvements for 'abyss-sealer' and removes an unnecessary build dependency on sqlite3.

Summary

This release introduces a new paired de Bruijn graph mode for assembly. In paired de Bruijn graph mode, ordinary k-mers are replaced by k-mer pairs, where each k-mer pair is separated by a fixed-size gap. The primary advantage of paired de Bruijn graph mode is that the span of a k-mer pair can be arbitrarily wide without consuming additional memory, and thus provides improved scalability for assemblies of long sequencing reads.

This release also introduces a new tool called Sealer for closing scaffold gaps, new Konnector functionality for producing long pseudo-reads, and support for the DIDA (Distributed Indexing Dispatched Alignment) parallel alignment framework.

ChangeLog

2015-05-28 Ben Vandervalk benv@bcgsc.ca

  • Release version 1.9.0
  • New paired de Bruijn graph mode for assembly.
  • First official release of Sealer, a tool for closing
    scaffold gaps by navigating a Bloom filter de Bruijn graph.
  • New outward extension feature for Konnector to generate
    long pseudo-reads.
  • Support for the DIDA (Distributed Indexing Dispatched
    Alignment) framework, for computing sequence alignments
    in parallel across multiple machines.
  • Unit tests can now be run easily with 'make check', without
    external dependencies.

abyss-bloom:

  • abyss-bloom 'build' command now supports -j option for
    multi-threaded Bloom filter construction.

abyss-map:

  • New --protein option for mapping protein sequences.

abyss-pe:

  • New paired de Bruijn graph mode for assembly. Enable by
    setting k to the k-mer pair span and K to size of an
    individual k-mer in a k-mer pair. See README.md for further
    details.
  • New aligner=dida option for using the DIDA parallel alignment
    framework. See the DIDA section of the abyss-pe man page
    for usage details.
  • New graph=gfa option to use the GFA (Graphical
    Fragment Assembly) format for intermediate graph files.

abyss-sealer:

  • New tool for closing scaffold gaps by navigating a Bloom
    filter de Bruijn graph
  • See Sealer/README.md or abyss-sealer man page for details

Summary

In this release we introduce Konnector, a fast and memory-efficient tool to fill the gap between paired-end reads. Konnector determines the intervening sequence by building a Bloom filter de Bruijn graph and searching for paths between paired-end reads within the graph. A companion tool called abyss-bloom is also provided which can be used to construct reusable bloom filter files for input to Konnector; otherwise, Konnector will build an in-memory Bloom filter for one-time use. In addition to Konnector, we have fixed bugs related to compiling with GCC 4.8+ and parsing BWA output SAM files.

ChangeLog

2014-07-09 Anthony Raymond traymond@bcgsc.ca

  • Release version 1.5.2
  • First official release of Konnector and abyss-bloom.
  • More GCC 4.8+ fixes! Modified Boost install instructions.
  • Fixed rare bug when parsing output of BWA.

ABYSS:

  • New option, --mask-cov, use kmers with lowercased bases, but
    don't count them towards multiplicity.

abyss-bloom:

  • Construct reusable Bloom filter files for use with Konnector.
  • Perform boolean operations on two or more bloom filters.
    Currently supports union and intersection operations.

abyss-fixmate:

  • Check for boost 1.43+ when using unordered_map::quick_erase.
  • New option, --all, to report all alignments.
  • Set mate unmapped flag for mateless reads.

abyss-longseqdist:

  • Fixed error: invalid CIGAR when reading BWA output.

configure:

  • Include mpi and boost libraries as system libraries. Silences
    warnings (treated as errors) when compiling with GCC 4.8+.

konnector:

  • Merge read pairs into a single sequence (pseudoread) by
    building a Bloom filter de Bruijn graph and searching for paths
    between the paired end reads. Input reads may be
    FASTA/FASTQ/SAM/BAM. The input files must be sorted by read name
    and may not contain orphan reads.
