Maps small RNAs onto a reference genome. MicroRazerS is a special version of the short read mapping tool RazerS. The software employs the gapped q-gram method in conjunction with the Swift parallelogram filter to detect with all read matches for which a read prefix of lengths contains 0 or 1 mismatch and then guarantees to find for each read the match that has the lowest number of mismatches in the seed and that can be extended furthest to the right.
