V-FAT is a tool to perform automated computational finishing and annotation of de novo viral assemblies. V-FAT uses reference and read data to order and merge contigs, correct frameshifts, and produce NCBI-ready annotation files. It also performs a set of quality assurance measurements including coverage computation by gene or amplicon and identification of potential consensus errors.
