gap4 - Genome Assembly Program (part of staden package)


gap4 [-ro] [-maxseq <number>] [-maxdb <number>] [-skip_notes] [DATABASE_NAME.V]


Gap4 is a Genome Assembly Program. The program contains all the tools that would be
expected from an assembly program plus many unique features and a very easily used
interface. The original version was described in Bonfield,J.K., Smith,K.F. and Staden,R. A
new DNA sequence assembly program. Nucleic Acids Res. 24, 4992-4999 (1995)

Gap4 is very big and powerful. Everybody employs a subset of options and has their
favourite way of accessing and using them. Although there is a lot of it, users are
encouraged to go through the whole of the documentation once, just to discover what is
possible, and the way that best suits their own work. At the very least, the whole of this
introductory chapter should be read, as in the long run, it will save time.
