Quality Assessment Tool for Genome Assemblies
QUAST performs fast and convenient quality evaluation and comparison of genome assemblies. QUAST computes a number of well-known metrics, including contig accuracy, number of genes discovered, N50, and others, as well as introducing new ones, like NA50 (see details in the paper and in the manual). A comprehensive analysis results in summary tables (in plain text, tab-separated and LaTeX formats) and colorful plots. The tool also produces web-based reports condensing all information in one easy to navigate file. QUAST has an intuitive command-line interface and a detailed manual to help users run it and understand its output. Furthermore, the Lab started a Beta version of web-QUAST at http://quast.bioinf.spbau.ru/ which makes quality evaluation even more simple. QUAST and MetaQUAST (extension for metagenomic assemblies) papers were published in Bioinformatics.

PyRx enables Medicinal Chemists to run Virtual Screening from any platform and helps users in every step of this process - from data preparation to job submission and analysis of the results. While it is true that there is no magic button in the drug discovery process, PyRx includes docking wizard with easy-to-use user interface which makes it a valuable tool for Computer-Aided Drug Design. PyRx also includes chemical spreadsheet-like functionality and powerful visualization engine that are essential for Rational Drug Design. Please visits PyRx home page to learn more about PyRx and watch videos on how to use it.
Somatic fusion-genes finder for RNA-seq data
FusionCatcher searches for novel/known somatic fusion genes, translocations, and chimeras in RNA-seq data (paired-end reads from Illumina NGS platforms like Solexa and HiSeq) from diseased samples. The aims of FusionCatcher are: - very good detection rate for finding candidate fusion genes, - very easy to use (i.e. no a priori knowledge of databases and bioinformatics is needed in order to run FusionCatcher), - very good detection of challenging fusion genes, like for example IGH fusions, CIC fusions, DUX4 fusions, CRLF2 fusions, TCF3 fusions, etc. - to be as automatic as possible (i.e. the FusionCatcher will choose automatically the best parameters in order to find candidate fusion genes, e.g. finding automatically the adapters, building the exon-exon junctions automatically based on the length of the input reads, etc.) while providing the best possible detection rate for finding fusion genes.

Software for Long-Read Sequencing Data from PacBio
This currently hosts two projects created and maintained by Adam English. PBJelly - the genome upgrading tool. PBHoney - the structural variation discovery tool Both are contained within the PBSuite code found in downloads. ----- PBJelly ----- Read The Paper http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0047768 PBJelly is a highly automated pipeline that aligns long sequencing reads (such as PacBio RS reads or long 454 reads in fasta format) to high-confidence draft assembles. PBJelly fills or reduces as many captured gaps as possible to produce upgraded draft genomes. ----- PBHoney ----- Read The Paper http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/15/180/abstract PBHoney is an implementation of two variant-identification approaches designed to exploit the high mappability of long reads (i.e., greater than 10,000 bp). PBHoney considers both intra-read discordance and soft-clipped tails of long reads to identify structural variants.
