This tools is used for finding mutations using breseq for experiments with control/background samples.
If you use breseq to find mutation in bacteria, but the reference strain is not well assembled or annotated, you should re-seq your reference strain as a control/background, and use a close strain as reference for analysis.
breseq-rm-bg makes breseq output file (
output/index.html) more readable by removing mutations that are in control/background sample.

v0.2.0 is tested for breseq version
0.33.2, it should works for recent breseq versions.
