Abstract: The DNA fragment assembly is an essential step in DNA sequencing projects. Since DNA sequencers output fragments, the original genome must be reconstructed from these small reads. In this paper, a new fragment assembly algorithm, Pattern Matching based String Graph Assembler (PMSGA), is presented. The algorithm uses multipattern matching to detect overlaps and a minimum cost flow algorithm to detect repeats. Special care was taken to reduce the algorithm's run time without compromising the quality of the assembly. PMSGA was compared with well-known fragment assemblers. The algorithm is faster than other assemblers. PMSGA produced high quality assemblies with prokaryotic data sets. The results for eukaryotic data are comparable with other assemblers.
