Performance evaluation method for read mapping tool in clinical panel sequencing

PMCID: 5846869
PMID: 29568413
DOI: 10.1007/s13258-017-0621-9

[…] 2 using position-specific scoring matrices for high divergent reads such as ancient DNA, CUSHAW3 (Liu et al. ) scoring higher sensitivity compared to BWA–MEM, Bowtie 2 and NovoAlign for short reads, Kart (Lin and Hsu ) reducing the runtime to about 3–100 times compared to BWA–MEM and Bowtie 2 with both short and long reads, and NextGenMap (Sedlazeck et al. ) showing shorter runtime and higher per […]


DART: a fast and accurate RNA seq mapper with a partitioning strategy

PMCID: 5860201
PMID: 28968831
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx558

[…] ed a novel RNA-Seq mapping algorithm, call DART (Division based Alignment for RNA-Seq Transcripts) to handle spliced alignment without any annotation guidance. It is derived from our DNA read mapper, Kart (). DART adopts a partitioning strategy to handle RNA-Seq transcript alignments. Unlike most of read aligners that try to extend a seed in both directions with a dynamic programming step, DART di […]


Kart: a divide and conquer algorithm for NGS read alignment

PMCID: 5860120
PMID: 28379292
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx189

[…] Kart was developed under Linux 64-bit environment and implemented with standard C/C ++. It supports multi-thread to take advantage of multi-core computers. Kart reads a BWT-based indexing file and a r […]
