Ion Torrent technology allows genome sequencing with reduced costs, leading to its widespread use in bacterial genomics. Given the abundance of information produced by this platform, intuitive bioinformatics tools demanding minimal training are required in order to translate such a technology into the clinical settings routine.
IonGAP is a publicly available integrated pipeline designed for the assembly and subsequent analysis of Ion Torrent bacterial sequence data. Both its components and their configuration are based on a research process aimed to discover the optimal combination of tools for obtaining good results from single-end reads generated by the Ion Torrent PGM sequencer.
