NanoPack: Visualizing and Processing Long-Read Sequencing Data

Bioinformatics. 2018 Aug 1;34(15):2666-2669. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bty149.

Abstract

Summary: Here we describe NanoPack, a set of tools developed for visualization and processing of long-read sequencing data from Oxford Nanopore Technologies and Pacific Biosciences.

Availability and implementation: The NanoPack tools are written in Python3 and released under the GNU GPL3.0 License. The source code can be found at https://github.com/wdecoster/nanopack, together with links to separate scripts and their documentation. The scripts are compatible with Linux, Mac OS and the MS Windows 10 subsystem for Linux and are available as a graphical user interface, a web service at http://nanoplot.bioinf.be and command line tools.

Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
