Trowel is an error correction module for Illumina sequencing reads, which is based on the k-mer spectrum approach. This tool is the first tool that uses a quality threshold instead of a coverage cutoff in order to extract trusted k-mers. This tool guarantees high accuracy and speed.

This tool has been developed since 21. Jan. 2013 by Euncheon Lim in Prof. Dr. Detlef Weigel's Lab in Max-Planck Institute for Developmental Biology.

First of all, you have to install the exact version of boost(>=1.53.0), google sparse hash(>=2.0.2), GCC(>=4.6), autoconf(=2.69), and automake(=1.13).
