Provides highly efficient mapping solutions for genome-scale mapping projects involving Illumina or SOLiD data. The data structure in PerM requires only 4.5 bytes per base to index the human genome, allowing entire genomes to be loaded to memory, while multiple processors simultaneously map reads to the reference. PerM owes its performance primarily to the use of single periodic spaced seeds which are capable of providing sufficient weight and sensitivity to significantly increase genome-scale mapping performance in comparison with other mapping programs.
