       mira - The Genome and EST Sequence Assembly System


       The  mira  genome  and  RNA  assembler  is a specialised assembler for sequencing projects
       classified as 'hard' due to high number of similar repeats.

       The assembler is routinely used for such various tasks as mutation detection in  different
       cell types, similarity analysis of transcripts between organisms, and pristine assembly of
       sequences from various sources for oligo design in clinical microarray experiments.

       The purpose of the mira executable is to assemble sequencing data.


       mira [OPTION] manifest_file [manifest_file] ...


       -c / --cwd=directory
              Change working directory

       -h / --help
              Print short help and exit

       -m / --mcheck
              Only check the manifest file, then exit.

       -M / --mdcheck
              Only check the manifest file and presence of data files, then exit.

       -r / --resume
              Resume an interrupted assembly

       -t / --thread
              Force number of threads (overrides equivalent -GE:not manifest entry).

       -v / --version
              Print version and exit

       On Debian, this can be installed with the mira-doc  package  and  can  then  be  found  at
       /usr/share/doc/mira-assembler/DefinitiveGuideToMIRA.html.  On  other systems, you may want
       to check in /usr/local/share/mira/doc or run "locate  DefinitiveGuideToMIRA"  to  find  it
