Default Align full length contigs instead of reads


Splice aligners like HiSAT2 and STAR are optimised to map short reads (~100bp) to large genomes. I have assembled contigs available. I wish to align those contigs to the genomes. Do you think using HiSAT2 and STAR to align the contigs to a long genome will be a good choice? If not, could anyone suggest a better alternative?

Thank you
