SPAdes 2.5.1 is released

We are happy to announce that the version 2.5.1 of SPAdes single-cell assembler has been released. 

This version contains mostly minor improvements and fixes:

  • more user-friendly error reports,
  • less misassemblies on single-cell data sets with low covered genome fraction,
  • decreased memory consumption during the error correction stage.

The release also contains new features:

  • running SPAdes from check points: one can restart the assembler after a crash without running finished steps once again,
  • automatic k-mer size selection for standard data sets using the maximal read length.

You can download SPAdes 2.5.1 here.
