The Celera Assembler has been modified to assemble 454 FLX reads directly. The consensus module has yet to be modified specifically for these reads. Perhaps for that reason, Celera Assembler's consensus base call accuracy was lower than Newbler's on some tests. We should make the consensus module aware of error modalities specific to 454. The new code should not test specifically for 454 reads, as their nature may change over the years. Rather, it should check the read properties which are supplied as flags in the FRG2-format input file.
