Canu is a fork of the Celera Assembler, designed for high-noise single-molecule sequencing.
Canu is a hierarchical assembly pipeline which runs in four steps:
- Detect overlaps in high-noise sequences using MHAP
- Generate corrected sequence consensus
- Trim corrected sequences
- Assemble trimmed corrected sequences
Sample scripts for Canu use are available in directory /opt/packages/examples/canu on Bridges.
