Genome Assembly Tools (Published name:; citation: Hudson et al 2014 [Supp Matls]) This script takes an Illumina read set and a short query, and performs a grep-trim-sort. Despite its simplicity it produces a powerful visualization of the matching reads, with multiple "horns" when the query is repeated in the genome. We find this very useful for resolving assembly problems.

tFind_1_4 - (tRNA and tmRNA finder)
    tFind uses a combination of existing tools: tRNAscan-SE (Lowe and Eddy, 1997), BRUCE (Laslett et al. 2002) and ARAGORN (Laslett and Canback, 2004) to find and evaluate tmRNA, as well as our program, which includes our full- and terminus-sequence tmRNA databases which it searches using BLASTN. is directly used in this pipeline to find additional two-piece tmRNAs and accurately determine their termini and odd one-piece tmRNAs. These four programs are packaged together in tFind_1_4.tgz.
