Hi!

I have assembled my PacBio FASTQ reads with Canu. Now I would like to polish\correct the assembly by mapping these PacBio FASTQ reads on the assembly itself. I heard about Quiver in the SMRTanalysis pack, but I'm wondering if there is any alternative software.

Thanking you in advance for your help!

Canu uses alignments between pacbio reads to correct away most sequencing errors in raw reads. You can't do much better without using the signal information. To achieve high-quality consensus, Quiver is your only choice.

Thank you very much for the information you gave me. Quiver seems to be the best choice, I will try it!

The tools Pilon and Icorn2 performs assembly polishing with Illumina data. I am not sure if Icorn2 also takes PacBio reads for correction. Running additional rounds of Quiver may be the helpful to use the PacBio reads efficiently.
