SeqAlto 0.5-r123 – Fast and Accurate Read Alignment for Resequencing

SeqAlto 0.5-r123

:: DESCRIPTION

 SeqAlto is an aligner specifically designed for Illumina reads of length greater or equal to about 100-bp. It takes advantage of this longer read length to provide fast alignment rates and accurate placement of polymorphic reads. Paired-end reads are recommended for even greater accuracy. When aligning 100-bp paired-end reads SeqAlto is on average about 2-4x faster than BWA while being more sensitive and much faster for longer reads.
