rNA 1.0 / mrNA 1.0 / grNA 0.9 – randomized Numerical Aligner

rNA 1.0 / mrNA 1.0 / grNA 0.9


rNA (randomized Numerical Aligner) is a software able to align the huge amount of data produced by Next Generation Sequencers. The main feature of rNA is the fact that it achieves an accuracy greater than the majority of other tools in a feasible amount of time. rNA works with single as well as paired ends reads and it allows indels and delta-search for better accuracy.

mrNA is the MPI version of the original rNA program.

grNA is a graphical front-end for rNA
