SMARTdenovo is a de novo assembler for PacBio and Oxford Nanopore (ONT) data. It produces an assembly from all-vs-all raw read alignments without an error correction stage. It also provides tools to generate accurate consensus sequences, though a platform dependent consensus polish tools (e.g. Quiver for PacBio or Nanopolish for ONT) are still required for higher accuracy.
SMARTdenovo consists of several separate command line tools: wtzmo for read
overlapping, wtgbo to rescue missing overlaps, wtclp for identifying
low-quality regions and chimaera, and wtcns or wtmsa to produce better
unitig consensus. The
smartdenovo.pl script provides a convenient interface
to call these programs in one go. If you do not care about the internal of
SMARTdenovo, you may simply run with:
/path/to/smartdenovo/smartdenovo.pl -p prefix -c 1 reads.fa > prefix.mak make -f prefix.mak
It calls other SMARTdenovo executables in the same directory containing
smartdenovo.pl. After assembly, the raw unitigs are reported in file
prefix.lay.utg and consensus unitigs in
prefix.cns. If you want to know
more about how SMARTdenovo works in detail, please see README-tools.md.
Most time of assembly is spent on Smith-Waterm alignment, which might be not necessary to long reads assembly. We are developping a novel algorithm, called dot matrix alignment , which is smith-waterman free.
wtzmo now supports dot matrix alignment by add option
-U -1 -m 0.1.
