Hi all, here is the issue:
I have set of Pacbio CCS long reads, say 7kb long each, that for the most part totally overlap with each other. Therefore if one were to assemble them, the assembly would not be much longer than the reads themselves.
I believe CANU has a little trouble when this is a case.
Does anyone know a good assembly algorithm for this case?
The question could be reframed as: What is a good algorithm for getting a consensus long read based on an input of mostly overlapping long reads?
