Ion Torrent technology allows genome sequencing with reduced costs; however, its major drawback is the lack of tools dedicated to processing and assembling Ion Torrent reads.
IonGAP is a free graphical integrated pipeline designed for the assembly and subsequent analysis of Ion Torrent sequencing data. Both its components and their configuration are based on a research process aimed to discover the optimal combination of tools for obtaining good results from single-end reads generated by the Ion Torrent PGM sequencer, mainly from bacterial genomic material.
