TransLiG: a de novo transcriptome assembler that uses line graph iteration

Juntao Liu, Ting Yu, Zengchao Mu, Guojun Li

TransLiG is an efficient de novo trascriptome assembler for RNA-Seq data. It can assemble 
 all transcripts from short reads (single or paired) without using a reference.  
 The software expects as input RNA-Seq reads in fasta or fastq format, and ouput all
 assembled candidate transcripts in fasta format. Briefly, it works in two step: first,
 TransLiG partitions the sequence data into many individual splicing graphs, each capturing 
 the full transcriptional complexity at a given gene or no more than a few genes. Then, 
 TransLiG repetitively phases and contracts paths over the splicing graphs, infering an optimal 
 edge-path-cover for each graph representing the expressed transcripts of this gene locus.
