Atlas is a collection of software tools to facilitate the assembly of large genomes from whole genome shotgun reads, or a combination of whole genome shotgun reads and BAC or other localized reads.

This suite of tools has been used in the whole genome shotgun and BAC-based assemblies of the rat (Rattus norvegicus), fruitfly (D. pseudoobscura), honeybee (Apis mellifera), sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus), bovine (Bos taurus), and other species.
