Significant improvements of CLC Assembly Cell

CLC Assembly Cell is a high-performance computing solution for mapping reads to a reference and de novo assembly of next generation sequencing data.

With the command-line interface of CLC Assembly Cell, you can easily include its functionalities in scripts and other next generation sequencing workflows, and it’s easy to install on your desktop computer or larger compute cluster. CLC Assembly Cell is accelerated through advanced algorithm implementations using the SIMD instruction set to parallelize and accelerate the most compute intensive parts of the algorithms. This makes the software one of the fastest and most accurate packages for NGS data analysis on the market.

Our new assembler is now part of CLC Assembly Cell – allowing rapid error correction and assembly of PacBio data. The read mapper has also been improved to better handle mapping of long reads such as PacBio sequencing reads.
