MaSuRCA is whole genome assembly software. It combines the efficiency of the de Bruijn graph and Overlap-Layout-Consensus (OLC) approaches. MaSuRCA can assemble data sets containing only short reads from Illumina sequencing or a mixture of short reads and long reads (Sanger, 454).

Required Modules

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:masurca}}_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_{{#uppercase:masurca}}_BIN - executable directory
  • HPC_{{#uppercase:masurca}}_CFG - sample configuration file directory

Additional Information

You can find the sample configuration file sr_config_example.txt is available in the '$HPC_MASURCA_CFG' directory.

A script distributed by the Stringtie project and modified for use on HiPerGator is available starting with masurca/3.2.1.


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