Summary: De novo assembly of human genomes on a desktop computer

Description

Minia is a short-read assembler based on a de Bruijn graph, capable of assembling Illumina reads of a human genome on a desktop computer in a day. Minia produces results of similar contiguity and accuracy to other de Bruijn assemblers (e.g. Velvet).

Note: the output of Minia is a set of contigs. To use paired-end information and get scaffolds, use an external scaffolder (i.e. SSPACE, Bambus 2, etc..)
