TIGR assembler vs PHRED/PHRAP

For ESTs, I think you might want to try CAP3.  That is what TIGR uses to
create their 
gene indices.  There is a good paper that compares different assembly
for how they handle ESTs (Nucleic Acids Research Vol 28: 3657-3665).

I've used all three and I've found CAP3 most useful, although I haven't really
much with the other two.  You can view your assemblies with Consed (part of
Phrap package)
if you use the -nophd switch when you call the program.

Hope that helps.
