In regard to 7 yrs old discussion about aligning linear to circular sequences - is anyone aware of aligners that can handle such alignment properly? For alignment purposes, for example, CLC-Bio Genomic Workbench does not seem to be aware if sequence is circular, although it can show rCRS mtDNA as circular. Yet it cannot properly align to it a linear sequence that is should align between pos. 16022-origin-1280 to circular rCRS. Nor can Geneious, for another example.

Since both of those are commercial programs have you contacted their respective tech supports about this?

Yes, I guess they are scratching pumpkins... I just wanted to know if anyone in the community is aware of other possibilities, like open source...

Is it NGS data ? Because i did it on times on NGS data with bwa and to make this possible i just merge 2 references together ....

No, this is just alignment of a contig previously assembled separately. CLC Bio developers confirmed that their Genomics Workbench aligner cannot handle circularity. As workaround they suggested either to use their Map to a Reference tool, which can handle circularity, or to align to a duplicated circular sequence.

Please use ADD COMMENT/ADD REPLY when responding to existing posts to keep threads logically organized.

BTW, have you looked at this: Aligning Circular Sequences (old thread but has ideas/tools).

Have you considered Circlator?
