Identifies the relative frequencies of reference sequences contributing to a pooled DNA sample. Karp combines the speed and low-memory requirements of k-mer based pseudoalignment with a likelihood framework that uses base quality information to better resolve multiply mapped reads. It is accurate across a variety of read lengths and when samples contain reads originating from organisms absent from the reference. Karp employs an Expectation Maximization (EM) algorithm that uses information from all the reads to accurately estimate the relative frequencies of each reference in the sample.
