Clinical PathoScope: rapid alignment and filtration for accurate pathogen identification in clinical samples using unassembled sequencing data

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4131054
PMID: 25091138
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-15-262

[…] Clinical PathoScope was evaluated alongside two existing pathogen identification algorithms, RINS [] and READSCAN [] to emphasize the major differences in performance between assembly-based approaches and our implementation of computational subtraction with varying read length and ambiguous read reassign […]
