I would like to reduce contig number of the bacterial draft genome I'm trying to close. The draft genome is in 47 contigs and has been assembled by me, using Phred, Phrap, Consed.
I'm thinking in using the other draft genome that has been published (same bacterial specie) perform this task.
Do you think I should start from zero, that is, join the not assembled raw data of the two drafts published and see what happens, or use a tool having as input the two assembled drafts?
Thanks for you help, Bernardo
