Looking for some information on assemblers that can work with mixed data for de novo assembly of transcriptomes
I currently have independent assemblies of RNA-Seq data (normalized, processed, and assembled with trinity), 454 data (processed and assembled with newbler), and some older Sanger EST data.
When looking at co-assembly/hybrid options (non-commercial only), the only one that seems specifically able to handle multiple platforms is Mira.
Others that do, Celera, etc. seem to only be applicable for genome assemblies.
Any advice on other packages that I have missed or other preferred approaches?
