HGAP is a tool for de novo genome assembly using PacBio reads. It implements a hierarchical assembly process that starts with using reads that are longer than the rest as seed reads to gather all other reads for constructing a highly accurate preassembled reads. After this step, the preassembled reads can be assembled using the overlap-layout-consensus approach.
