The November 2015 release of SLiMSuite
2015-11-30) in now on GitHub. This is intermediate release in preparation for the BioInfoSummer 2015 SLiMSuite workshop and contains a few minor modifications to SLiMSuite programs. The main updates are preliminary versions of some tools for PacBio genomics, notably
SMRTSCAPE. These are still in development and need further documentation and testing before use is advised.
Genbank parser has some bug fixes for reverse complemented protein sequences with introns, and initial capacity for different codon tables. (This has been implemented for yeast, so only NCBI transl_tables 1-3 currently implemented: please get in touch if you want to use this program with other codon tables.)
