This Docker container is part of the nucleotide.es genome assembler comparison project (currently internal to Joint Genome Institute). It installs and executes the Meraculous2 genome assembler on a specified Illumina shotgun dataset that must meet the following characteristics:
genome size: appx. 0.5-1 mb
read length: 100-300 bp
library type: paired-end, 270 +/-30 bp
The results is the file final.scaffolds.fa containing all scaffolds over 1kb in size.
