DNPTrapper is an assembly editing and visualization tool specifically designed for manual analysis and finishing of repeated regions. It differs from previous tools by providing flexibility and an overview that greatly simplifies the finishing process, by allowing the user to view whole repeat regions at once and to edit assembly errors manually by drag and drop. The program implements and visualizes the results of a previously described statistical method that detects defined nucleotide positions (DNPs, representing single base differences between repeat units) in the presence of sequencing errors.Please cite if you use DNPTrapper.
