The University of Maryland along with several other contributors have set out to develop an open source genome assembler. The assembler is designed to accept modular additions. The assembler comes with a suite of applications for a variety of utilities as well.
Here is a link to the Source Forge Project for AMOS
Provides two assemblers :
AMOScmp - a comparative assembler.
Minimus - a basic assembler for small datasets.
The latest version of AMOS - amos-2.0.8 is downloaded from the AMOS Source Forge Project link.
This version of AMOS is installed in campusrocks cluster at “/campusdata/BME235/programs/AMOS/”.
The instructions to install AMOS are available at installing AMOS section.
Under “/campusdata/BME235/programs/AMOS/” the steps followed for installation are :
