bookmark emMAW Represents an external-memory algorithm for computing minimal absent words. EmMAW allows for computation of minimal absent words on far bigger data sets. This tool making use of external memory. The computation is done with regard to a sequence of length n and its SA, LCP, and BWT in external memory. On a standard workstation, the implementation requires around 3 hours to process the full human genome when as little as 1 GB of RAM is made available.
