SeedsGraph: an efficient assembler for next generation sequencing data

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 4460749
PMID: 26044652
DOI: 10.1186/1755-8794-8-S2-S13

[…] arge genomes. There are many typical OLC software programs, such as Newbler [], Celera Assembler [], Arachne [] and so forth. Besides these, there are string graph-based assemblers such as SGA [] and Readjoiner [], which take advantage of the FM-index and are derived from the compressed Burrows-Wheeler transform. The bottleneck of OLC methods is the computation of pairwise suffix-prefix alignment […]


A Practical and Scalable Tool to Find Overlaps between Sequences

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 4417569
PMID: 25961045
DOI: 10.1155/2015/905261

[…] chine A. It is used to evaluate SOF time and space requirements when limited resources are available.An AWS instance with 16 cores to evaluate the parallelization of our solution and compare SOF with Readjoiner. We refer to it as machine B. It is used to evaluate SOF time and space requirements when dealing with large data sets. […]


Data compression for sequencing data

PMCID: 3868316
PMID: 24252160
DOI: 10.1186/1748-7188-8-25

[…] ome reads using 54 GB of memory. This was achieved thanks to a compressed data structure, the FM-index [], which will be mentioned also later. Interestingly, another practical string graph assembler, Readjoiner [], which can process 115 Gbp short reads dataset in 52 GB of RAM, does not make use of compressed data structures, but its space effectiveness comes from an ingenious partitioning approach […]
