Trowel 0.2.0.4 – Error Correction Module for Illumina Sequencing Reads

Trowel 0.2.0.4

:: DESCRIPTION

Trowel is an error correction module for Illumina sequencing reads, which is based on the k-mer spectrum approach. This tool is the first tool that uses a quality threshold instead of a coverage cutoff in order to extract trusted k-mers.

cutadapt 1.9.1 – Remove Adapter Sequences from DNA Sequencing reads

cutadapt 1.9.1

:: DESCRIPTION

Cutadapt removes adapter sequences from DNA high-throughput sequencing data. This is usually necessary when the read length of the machine is longer than the molecule that is sequenced, such as in microRNA data.

ORCOM 1.0 – Compressor of Sequencing Reads

ORCOM 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

ORCOM (Overlapping Reads COmpression with Minimizers) is a compressor of sequencing reads. It takes as an input FASTQ files (possibly gzipped) and stores the DNA symbols of each read in a highly-compressed form.

SnpStore 1.0 – SNP and Indel Calling in mapped NGS Sequencing Reads

SnpStore 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

 SnpStore is a program for SNP and indel calling in mapped next-generation sequencing read data. It features a simple threshold-based model for SNP and indel calling, and a MAQ-like Bayesian model for SNP genotype calling.
