DISCOVAR is a new variant caller and DISCOVAR de novo a new genome assembler, both designed for state-of-the-art data. Their inputs are chosen to optimize quality while keeping costs low. Currently it takes as input Illumina reads of length 250 or longer — produced on MiSeq or HiSeq 2500 — and from a single PCR-free library. These data enable a level of completeness and continuity that was not previously possible.
DISCOVAR can call variants on a region by region basis, potentially tiling an entire large genome. DISCOVAR variant calling is under active development and transitioning to VCF.
DISCOVAR de novo can generate de novo assemblies for both large and small genomes. It currently does not call variants.
