Hapsembler is a haplotype-specific genome assembly toolkit that is designed for genomes that are rich in SNPs and other types of polymorphism. Hapsembler can be used to assemble reads from a variety of platforms including Illumina and Roche/454.

The Hapsembler pipeline is described in contain three main stages:

  1. error correction
  2. genome assembly
  3. scaffolding

Required Modules

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:hapsembler}}_DIR
