GenSeed is a tool that allows for targeted assembly of specific sequences in the genome using reads relevant to the targets. This Perl program implements a recursive algorithm to find sequence similarity, select reads, and assembly. The program should be useful for assembling particular nuclear genes, transcripts and extrachromosomal genomes.
