IMAGE ( Iterative Mapping and Assembly for Gap Elimination) is a software designed to close gaps in any draft assembly using Illumina paired end reads. IMAGE is best described in several stages: aligning of Illumina reads at contig ends; local assembly of reads into new contigs; reference contigs are extended or merged; iterating the whole process to extend and merge more contigs.
