What is Colib’read?

Dedicated to “whole genome assembly-free & reference-free” treatments, the Colib’read project designs algorithms for NGS analyses. Colib’read developed tools are designed for:

  • Variant calling (SNPs, indels, Alternative splicing)
  • Read set comparisons
  • Long read correction

All developed tools need only raw read sets to be used, no reference genome is required. However, a reference genome may be used, bringing additional pieces of information to proposed results.

Special care was given to limit both the memory and time requirements of all tools.

Colib’read is an ANR project. It gathers together academic French research teams from Lyon (Erable team), Montpellier (MAB team) and Rennes (GenScale team).
