Efficient parallel and out of core algorithms for constructing large bi directed de Bruijn graphs

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2996408
PMID: 21078174
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-560

[…] parallelism the run time is asymptotically optimal - which means optimality within a constant. In practice coarse-grain parallelism is what we have. Here n = N (r - k + 1). We call this algorithm Par-BiConstruct.Theorem 2. Algorithm Par-BiConstruct builds a bi-directed de Bruijn graph in time O(n/p). The message complexity is O(n).The algorithm of Jackson and Aluru [] first identifies the vertices […]
