Cluster EST sequences

Xsact is an EST clustering program with a variety of output options. This package exposes the internal libraries, and provides 4 binaries:

  • xsact; implements a complete multiple-matching clustering algorithm.

  • xplit; This implements a simple splitter for xsact's UniGene-formatted files. Useful if you want to run an assembler on individual clusters.

  • xtract; the eXperimental TRanscript Assembly/Consensus Tool. The idea is to construct the splice graph from each EST cluster in the input, by first constructing and then traversing the de Bruijn graph of $k-1$-words.
