Abstract

Recent technological advances in DNA sequencing technology are resulting in ever-larger quantities of sequence information being made available to an increasingly broad segment of the scientific and clinical community. This is in turn driving the need for standard, rapid and easy to use tools for genomic reconstruction and analysis. As a step towards addressing this challenge, we present PadeNA (Parallel de Novo Assembler), a parallelized DNA sequence assembler with a graphical user interface. PadeNA is designed using interface-driven architecture to facilitate code reusability and extensibility, and is provided as part of the open source Microsoft Biology Foundation. Installers and documentation are available at http://research.microsoft.com/bio/ .
