MacVector Assembler

MacVector Assembler is an add-on module for MacVector that lets you assemble sequences using the phred/phrap/cross_match algorithms from the University of Washington, or the Velvet algorithm for next generation sequencing data. You can also generate genomic reference alignments with NGS data aligned using Bowtie. MacVector Assembler integrates tightly into MacVector so that they appear as a single application. This means that when you create assembled contigs, you can immediately analyze the sequences using any of MacVector's DNA analysis or manipulation functions.
