AMOS is a collection of tools and class interfaces for the assembly of DNA reads. The package includes a robust infrastructure, modular assembly pipelines, and tools for overlapping, consensus generation, contigging, and assembly manipulation.
Amos is a piece of great soft. But it is terribly difficult to compile since it depends on so many different third part packages. Why can't the developer just release a pre-compiled binary (preferably 64 bit so that a large genome will not crash the software)?
