Breaking Lander Waterman’s Coverage Bound

PLoS One
PMCID: 5091917
PMID: 27806058
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0164888

[…] med on chr19 of Human genome hg19 for both noiseless and noisy reads. We have shown significant improvement on coverage bound for real genome is achieved by using this method. For processing machine, Meta-aligner [] scheme is used to align reads on the reference genome.The longer the read lengths, more reduction on number of read bases will be achieved by our method. A number of Next Generation Se […]


ReformAlign: improved multiple sequence alignments using a profile based meta alignment approach

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4133627
PMID: 25099134
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-15-265

[…] against the profile. The new alignment is then indirectly inferred by merging all the individual subalignments into a unified group. The proposed approach is implemented as part of a newly introduced meta-aligner under the name ReformAlign (Reformed Alignments) and is freely available to the public from under the GNU General Public License (ver […]


Ensembl’s 10th year

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 2808936
PMID: 19906699
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkp972

[…] ons (,,).Ensembl GeneTrees are the result of a comprehensive analysis to predict phylogeny in vertebrates and have recently been described in detail (). The latest improvements include the use of the meta-aligner M-Coffee () and incorporation of information about exon boundaries into the alignments. We now restrict our calculation of pairwise dN/dS values such that they are only calculated for hig […]
