PMCID: 5794061
PMID: 29389989
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0189960

[…] based dbg assemblers, minimizer sampling is used to select m-mers (m < k) from every k-mer. these m-mers are later used to reduce disk i/o operations in disk based counting k-mers tools such as mspkmercounter [] and kmc2 []. again, this problem is significantly different than our motivating problems which are searching for mems and hslas. in mem and hsla search problems, the location […]

DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx200

[…] attracted researchers’ interest for quite a while now (; ; ). it is the gold standard for short read assemblies with de bruijn graphs (; ) and there are several highly efficient k-mer counters, like mspkmercounter (), dsk (), and kmc2 (). alignment-free sequence comparisons have been studied in numerous ways and are competitive with alignment-based methods in terms of accuracy […]

PMID: 28881970
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx235

[…] we look at the potential effect of using universal hitting set orderings on bioinformatics applications. in the case of dna sequence binning, such as performed by the k-mer counters kmc2 () and mspkmercounter (), we compare the distribution of the number and sizes of bins created by different orderings proposed in the literature. the universal hitting sets ordering perform better […]
