RazerS 3.5.0 Description:
RazerS was designed with focus on mapping next-generation sequencing reads against whole DNA genomes. RazerS searches for matches of reads with a percent identity above a given threshold, whereby it detects matches with mismatches as well as gaps. RazerS uses a k-mer index of all reads and counts common k-mers of reads and the reference genome in parallelograms. Each parallelogram with a k-mer count above a certain threshold triggers a verification.
