Cap3 Assembly


This module uses the cap3 program to perform shotgun assembly. Output will be placed in the fofn.assembly directory, where fofn is the filename prefix listed in the "Files to Process" panel. The output is in a format suitable for directed assembly within Gap4. This can also be performed by using the "Enter Assembly into Gap4" module.
