Performance evaluation method for read mapping tool in clinical panel sequencing

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

[…] with 21,071 unmapped reads, 0.3% of total, even in simulated read sets without any inserted mutation like Set 1, and 161,209 reads were unmapped in NextGenMap, 0.2% of total (Supplementary Table 4). Kart and BWA–PSSM also showed unmapped reads in Set 1, though very small. The proportions and average number of unmapped reads in the above tools neither increased nor showed any such tendency as the […]


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 […]
