De novo RNA-seq Assembly Pipeline

Short read RNASeq de novo assembly is a well established method to study transcription of organisms lacking a reference genome sequence. Available software packages such as Trinity and Oases have proven to be able to build high quality contigs from short reads. But there is still room for improvement on different points such as:

DRAP includes three modules:
