low mem assembler for NGS http://cortexassembler.sourceforge.net/


Cortex is an efficient and low-memory software framework for analysis of genomes using sequence data. There are two main executables, being developed in parallel streams: cortex_con (primary contact Mario Caccamo) is for consensus genome assembly, and cortex_var (primary contact Zamin Iqbal) is for variation and population assembly.

Typical memory use: 1 high coverage human in under 80Gb of RAM, 1000 yeasts in under 64Gb RAM, 10 humans in under 256 Gb RAM
