Aligns bisulfite-treated sequences and compares it to existing aligners. It allows indels, local alignments, and it never writes a temporary-file of the reads to disk, instead streaming the in silico converted reads directly to the aligner and streaming the alignments directly to a well-formatted alignment file suitable for use in downstream tools. In addition, it works well without quality-trimming, thereby reducing storage requirements 3-fold by not creating quality-trimmed or converted reads.
