□ H.E.L.E.N. (Haplotype Embedded Long-read Error-corrector for Nanopore):

>> https://github.com/kishwarshafin/helen

HELEN is a polisher intended to use for polishing human-genome assemblies generated by the Shasta assembler.

HELEN uses a Recurrent-Neural-Network (RNN) based Multi-Task Learning (MTL) model that can predict a base and a run-length for each genomic position using the weights generated by MarginPolish.

MarginPolish uses a probabilistic graphical-model to encode read alignments through a draft assembly to find the maximum-likelihood consensus sequence. The graphical-model operates in run-length space, which helps to reduce errors in homopolymeric regions.

□ Shasta long read assembler:

>> https://chanzuckerberg.github.io/shasta/

The goal of the Shasta long read assembler is to rapidly produce accurate assembled sequence using as input DNA reads generated by Oxford Nanopore flow cells.

Using a run-length representation of the read sequence. This makes the assembly process more resilient to errors in homopolymer repeat counts, which are the most common type of errors in Oxford Nanopore reads.
