Bug#435915: ITP: mira -- Whole Genome Shotgun and EST Sequence Assembler
Owner: Charles Plessy <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Package name : mira
Version : 2.8.2
Upstream Author : Bastien Chevreux

License : GPL
Programming Lang: C
Description : Whole Genome Shotgun and EST Sequence Assembler
The mira genome fragment assembler is a specialised assembler for
sequencing projects classified as 'hard' due to high number of similar
repeats. For expressed sequence tags (ESTs) transcripts, miraEST is
specialised on reconstructing pristine mRNA transcripts while
detecting and classifying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)
occuring in different variations thereof.
The assembler is routinely used for such various tasks as mutation
detection in different cell types, similarity analysis of transcripts
between organisms, and pristine assembly of sequences from various
sources for oligo design in clinical microarray experiments.
Mira has been freed under the GPL last friday, I will try to package
it quickly to help it having a good start.
