Arrow SOAPdenovo for ABySS contigs

Dear All

I am using ABySS to generate contigs from human reads. I now want to make scaffolds from it. I used SSPACE but did not get as good result as wit E.coli reads. Or may be I have not yet explored fully to how to optimize use of SSPACE, though I did try changing its parameters a bit.

Can the scaffolder inbuilt in SOAPdenovo scaff be used to make scaffolds from contigs generated from ABySS ? Has anyone tried it ? What are the other option tools for scaffolding ?

There is no such thing as "better or worst assembler". Every one has your own advantages and disadvantages. SOAPdenovo, ABySS and Velvet are commonly used when we're dealing with short-reads databases. But there is a lot of new assemblers being developed (for example Ray). Perhaps you should read the papers and find out what is the best option for you.




For a good review:
