riboSeed is an supplemental assembly refinement method to try to address the issue of multiple ribosomal regions in a genome, as these create repeates unresolvable by short read sequencing. It takes advantage of the fact that while each region is identical, the regions flanking are unique, and therefore can potentially be used to seed an assembly in such a way that rDNA regions are bridged.
