Description: M-GCAT is a tool for rapidly visualizing and aligning the most highly conserved regions in multiple (typically prokaryote) genomes. M-GCAT is based upon a highly efficient approach to anchor-based multiple genome comparison using a compressed suffix graph and thus can construct multiple genome alignment frameworks in closely related species usually in a few minutes. A couple of important limitations include (1) input sequences MUST be assembled, and (2) the comparison is reference-sequence biased. Further details on the M-GCAT algorithm and software can be found in this paper: T. Treangen and X. Messeguer.
