Velvet is a de novo genomic assembler specially designed for short read sequencing technologies, such as Solexa or 454 or SOLiD
MetaVelvet is a single-genome and de Bruijn-graph based assembler Velvet modified and extended for de novo metagenome assembly. The fundamental ideas are first decomposing de Bruijn graph constructed from mixed short reads into individual sub-graphs and second building scaffolds based on every decomposed de Bruijn sub-graph as isolate species genome.
Note that MetaVelvet is based on an older version of Velvet than those available on our system.
