MaSuRCA is whole genome assembly software. It combines the efficiency of the de Bruijn graph and Overlap-Layout-Consensus (OLC) approaches. MaSuRCA can assemble data sets containing only short reads from Illumina sequencing or a mixture of short reads and long reads (Sanger, 454).

Environment Modules

Run module spider masurca to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_MASURCA_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_MASURCA_BIN - executable directory
  • HPC_MASURCA_CFG - sample configuration file directory

Additional Information

You can find the sample configuration file sr_config_example.txt is available in the '$HPC_MASURCA_CFG' directory.

A script distributed by the Stringtie project and modified for use on HiPerGator is available starting with masurca/3.2.1.
