I have performed a RT-PCR which give me a 1500 pb product. I sequenced it with the Illumina technology (2X250 paired-end reads). Then, since several weeks, I unsuccessfully assemble the reads to get the full length sequence. I have tried many of classic assemblers (cap3, ssake, arapan, minimus2, ...) but all of them provide multiple contigs some of which exceeds more than 5kb!
I checked that all the reads are mapped well on the reference.
I am looking for an assembler able to do the job. Is there anyone have an idea?
