[Bioperl-l] Find tiling path

Thank you, sequence assembly will come after the step I am talking about

What I have is about 30,000 sequences, perhaps only 100 of which span
the region I want to create a contig for.  The step I am talking about
is identifying, out of the 30,000 sequences, those that match to the
region I want to contig - and only being in posession of the sequences
at one or both ends of that contig i.e. I want to start with a sequence
at the 5' end, and kind of "walk" along the sequence in the 3' direction
by identifying hits in the database that take me in that direction

You can try Cap3
or Phrap
