Reordering contigs of draft genomes using the Mauve aligner.

Bioinformatics 2009 Aug 10;25(16):2071-3. Epub 2009 Jun 10.

Genome Evolution Laboratory, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 425G Henry Mall Suite 4400V, Madison, WI 53706, USA.

Summary: Mauve Contig Mover provides a new method for proposing the relative order of contigs that make up a draft genome based on comparison to a complete or draft reference genome. A novel application of the Mauve aligner and viewer provides an automated reordering algorithm coupled with a powerful drill-down display allowing detailed exploration of results.

Availability: The software is available for download at http://gel.ahabs.wisc.edu/mauve.
