[…] data can be 400× smaller than the original. non-referential approaches achieve ratios of up to 8:1 []., several tools implement referential compression, and some of them are noteworthy, namely: dnazip [], rlz [], gdc [] and fresco []. dnazip is one of the pioneers in this approach, and the other mentioned solutions optimized and advanced the topic at their launching time. the main […]

[…] [] consider the task of directly compressing large sequence strings. while others consider alternative compression tasks such as coil [] which compresses a large database of unrelated sequences or dnazip [] which compresses variations to a reference genome. our goal is different as we want to compress a large number of very short sequences while using a large reference sequence. whether […]

[…] systematically ranked in the top 5 of genes de throughout parasite development (see additional file ). however, the same er-stress induced complex, involving atf4, which binds to ddit3 through a dnazip binding domain, has been shown to regulate the heme oxygenase 1 (hmox-1) gene expression as a defense mechanism against oxidative stress []. interestingly, atf4 is also up-regulated […]
