The Targeted High-throughput Ortholog Reconstructor (THOR) leverages the large amount of low-coverage whole–genome shotgun sequence read data generated for over twenty different animal species. Using this data, THOR can rapidly and efficiently reconstruct genomic sequences orthologs in low-coverage genomes. THOR is written in Java and runs on Linux.
