Phusion

Overview

Phusion is a software package for assembling genome sequences from whole genome shotgun(WGS) reads.

The Phusion assembler takes WGS reads, mostly paired with known insert sizes, as input along with quality score assigned for each base and produces a set of supercontigs (scaffords).

The Phusion assembler is involved in assembling a number of genomes, such as mouse, zebrafish, C. briggsae, Schistosoma mansoni etc.
