PMCID: 5845352
PMID: 29523083
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-018-2094-5

[…] a variety of ngs pipelines. in this paper, we have shown how a succinct hash index can be used as an efficient data structure for read mapping. based on this data structure we have presented fem, a fast and efficient read mapper designed to return all mapping positions of a read in a reference genome sequence with respect to an error threshold. tailored towards the succinct hash index, fem […]
