ZORRO is an hybrid sequencing technology assembler:tested with Solexa 454

Typos in the header aside... you have to love the name!

waiting for the name to become a verb... " I zorroed the NGS reads the other and i had a fantastic assembly!" lol..

Here goes:


ZORRO is an hybrid sequencing technology assembler. It takes 2 sets of pre-assembled contigs and merge them into a more contiguous and consistent assembly. We have already tested Zorro with Illumina Solexa and 454 from some of organisms varying from 3Mb to 100Mb. The main caracteristic of Zorro is the treatment before and after assembly to avoid errors.
The ZORRO project is maintained by Gustavo Lacerda, Ramon Vidal and Marcelo Carazzole and were first used in this Yeast assembly: Genome structure of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain widely used in bioethanol production
ZORRO needs to be better documented and has not undergone enough testing. If you want to discuss the pipeline you can join the mailing list: zorro-google group

p.s. the typo is here
"ZORROthe masked assember "
