MaSuRCA is a tool for genome assembly based on a hybrid approach that combines de Bruijn graph and overlap-based assembly strategies. It can be used for sequenced data with variable read lengths and hence it is suitable for assembling 454, Sanger and Illumina data. It implements the idea of assembling paired-end reads into longer super-reads to facilitate an easier subsequent assembly step.
