Telescoper: de novo Assembly of Highly Repetitive Regions

A new paper on assembly of highly repetitive regions came out in the Bioinformatics journal. It actually came from conference proceeding of ECCB 2012 being held in Basel.

Key features:

i) It is a overlap-layout-consensus algorithm and it works by iteratively extending non-repetitive seeds.

ii) It was tested on yeast teleomer data. Hence the name Telescoper.

iii) The source code can be downloaded from

iv) To say anything more, we need to run the program on real data.
