SVIM-asm (pronounced SWIM-assem) is a structural variant caller for haploid or diploid genome-genome alignments. It analyzes a given sorted BAM file (preferably from minimap2) and detects five different variant classes between the query assembly and the reference: deletions, insertions, tandem and interspersed duplications and inversions.

Note! To analyze raw long sequencing reads please use our other method SVIM.
