JASPER (Jellyfish based Assembly Sequence Polisher for Error Reduction) is an efficient polishing tool for draft genomes. It uses accurate reads (PacBio HiFi or Illumina) to evaluate consensus quality and correct consensus errors in genome assemblies. JASPER is substantially faster than polishing methods based on sequence alignment, and more accurate than currently available k-mer based methods. The efficiency and scalability of JASPER allows one to use it to create personalized reference genomes for specific populations very efficiently, even for large sequenced populations, by polishing the reference genome, such as GRCh38 or chm13v2.0 for human, with Illumina reads sequenced from many individuals from the population.

Note: This version of JASPER includes Jellyfish and all required dependencies.
