Ray is a parallel software that computes de novo genome assemblies with next-generation sequencing data.

Ray is written in C++ and can run in parallel on numerous interconnected computers using the message-passing interface (MPI) standard.

Ray is maintained by Sébastien Boisvert, a PhD student supervised by Jacques Corbeil and François Laviolette at Université Laval, in Québec, Canada.
