Celera Assembler version 8.0 was released on November 5th, 2013.

These problems have been observed since release.

  • Due to the increased maximum read length of 65kb, the unitig consensus module (utgcns) has a 16gb memory overhead. This is resolved in the CA 8.1 release.
  • The pre-compiled CA binaries do not include SAMtool support. SAMtool support is required to use pacBioToCA self-correction. To compile CA 8.0 with SAMtools support, download the CA 8.0 | source code and follow these instructions. This is resolved in the CA 8.1 release.
