17-April-2013: PAVE has been renamed to TCW (Transcriptome Computational Workbench) and is available from TCW. It was renamed because it is now a much bigger package including differential expression analysis and transcriptome comparison.

This project is funded in part by National Science Foundation grant IOS-1044821.

PAVE (Program for Assembling and Viewing ESTs) is a software package for assembling, annotating, querying and viewing transcript and expression level data. It was originally written for Sanger ESTs and has been upgraded to support next generation sequencing.

8 Oct 2012 Version 3.6 (see Release Notes for more detail):

  • Manager: this GUI makes it really easy to define the input files and parameters
  • Assembly: (1) assemble read libraries with transcript files, where the transcript files have associated read count files, or (2) load externally generated transcripts and expression data e.g. assembled Illumina contigs
  • Annotation; annotate transcripts from multiple amino acid (e.g. UniProt) or nucleotide databases
  • viewPAVE: query and view alignment of UniProt or Nucleotide hits to a unitran
