Cas File Format
CLC Assembly Cell uses the cas file format for read mappings. It is a custom file format that caters to the demands of high throughput sequencing data, while being flexible enough to handle other sequence data types also. No deep knowledge of this file format is necessary to work with it, but some basics can aid in understanding what this format contains and how it can be used.
