LASTZ is a program for aligning DNA sequences, a pairwise aligner. Originally designed to handle sequences the size of human chromosomes and from different species, it is also useful for sequences produced by NGS sequencing technologies such as Roche 454.

ABySS - Assembly By Short Sequence

ABySS is a de novo, parallel, paired-end genomic sequence assembler that is designed for short reads. The single-processor version is useful for assembling genomes up to 100 Mbases in size. The parallel version is implemented using MPI and is capable of assembling larger genomes. To assemble transcriptome data, consider the related program trans-abyss. Homepage:
