GATB: Genome Assembly & Analysis Tool Box

Abstract : Motivation: Efficient and fast NGS algorithms are essential to ana-lyze the terabytes of data generated by the next generation se-quencing machines. A serious bottleneck can be the design of such algorithms, as they require sophisticated data structures and ad-vanced hardware implementation. Results: We propose an open-source library dedicated to genome assembly and analysis to fasten the process of developing efficient software. The library is based on a recent optimized de-Bruijn graph implementation allowing complex genomes to be processed on desktop computers using fast algorithms with very low memory footprints. Availability and Implementation: The GATB library is written in C++ and is available at the following web site under the A-GPL license.
