Default Program to collapse overlapping PE reads?

Hi, all -

I'm looking for a program that will allow me to collapse paired-end FASTA reads into a single entry if the original reads overlap. For example, if I started with these reads:


...then I'd need it to produce a single entry, like this:

Does anyone have any suggestions of a program that could do this? Thanks!

SeqPrep is another good one with many parameters in case someoptimization is needed. It also trims adapters:

Some of suggestions are in the master list of software: Some are not.

People who suggest new programs (that are not on the master list) should take a moment to add them to the list.

Just to be clear for anyone finding this post, all of the above programs I quoted from a previous answer, including SeqPrep, require Fastq input. None of them will work on Fasta data as the OP described, so I guess this is an open question.

Update: I have found that COPE works with Fasta data. There may be others, and I'll update this post if I find any that are useful.
