SOAPdenovo is a novel short-read assembly method that can build a de novo draft assembly for the human-sized genomes. The program is specially designed to assemble Illumina GA short reads. It creates new opportunities for building reference sequences and carrying out accurate analyses of unexplored genomes in a cost effective way.

31, 63 and 127 maximum kmer size versions are available as SOAPdenovo31mer (SOAPdenovo binary), SOAPdenovo-63mer, and SOAPdenovo-127mer binaries.

soapdenovo/2.04 module includes GapCloser.
