ABySS (Assembly By Short Sequences) is a de novo, parallel, paired-end sequence assembler that is designed for short reads. The single-processor version is useful for assembling genomes up to 100 Mbases in size. The parallel version is implemented using MPI and is capable of assembling larger genomes.

ABySS is developed in the Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre supervised by Dr Inanc Birol.
