Kollector is a tool for assembling gene sequences based on the assembler ABySS by using transcript sequences as baits to capture whole genome shotgun (WGS) reads. This way, the WGS reads used for assembly are specific to the genomic region. The algorithm identifies kmers from transcripts and seed them to a progressive bloom filter, which is needed to gather genes among WGS reads.
