Abstract

BACKGROUND: The data produced by long-read third-generation sequencers have unique characteristics compared to short-read sequencing data, often requiring tailored analysis tools for tasks ranging from quality control to downstream processing. The rapid growth in software that addresses these challenges for different genomics applications is difficult to keep track of, which makes it hard for users to choose the most appropriate tool for their analysis goal and for developers to identify areas of need and existing solutions to benchmark against. FINDINGS: We describe the implementation of long-read-tools.org, an open-source database that organizes the rapidly expanding collection of long-rea..
