BESST is a package for scaffolding genomic assemblies. It contains several modules for e.g. building a "contig graph" from available information, obtaining scaffolds from this graph, and accurate gap size information (based on GapEst [1]).

Required Modules


  • gcc/5.2.0
  • besst

System Variables

  • HPC_BESST_DIR - installation directory


If you publish research that uses besst you have to cite it as follows:
