We received an email from Anton Korobeynikov of Algorithmic Biology Lab about the release of SPAdes 3.0. Anton mentioned several months back that they were working to incorporate PacBio reads in hybrid mode, and now it is official !! You can download the software from here and the list of changes are given below.

We look forward to reading the manuscript that presents their algorithms. Anton told us that they are working on it, but if it does not come too soon, we have to start poking around the code :)
