Hi Tony,

Ace files don't store paired end information explicitly, so Tablet can't show
you anything. I therefore wrote a MIRA assembly format (MAF) to SAM
converter which should then allow you to see the pairs in Tablet (or any
other SAM/BAM viewer): https://github.com/peterjc/maf2sam

I'm happy to have any feedback on the MIRA list.
