GMcloser fills and closes the gaps present in scaffold assemblies, especially those generated by the de novo assembly of whole genomes with next-generation sequencing (NGS) reads. Unlike other gap-closing tools that use only NGS reads, GMcloser uses preassembled contig sets or long read sets as the sequences to close gaps and uses paired-end (PE) reads and a likelihood-based algorithm to improve the accuracy and efficiency of gap closure. The efficiency of gap closure can be increased by successive treatments with different contig sets.
