"assembles short fixed-legth DNA sequences by mapping to reference sequences"

The reason why they don't mention genomics is because the reference
sequence doesn't have to be a genome; it should also include something like:

"This package is likely to be useful for users working with genetics
or genomic studies in biology who need to assembly DNA sequences from
fixed-length sequencers."
