ELOPER is a tool to pre-process paired-end short reads for a better performance during assembly. It implements an algorithm that detects overlaps between both ends of the paired-end reads, which then merged those reads with significant overlaps. The performance is superior than assemblers that typically consider the two ends of each paired-end read separately for overlap detection. However, this tool does not perform the assembly step itself but rather it processed the paired-end reads for assembly.
