tool for approximate mapping of long biosequences such as DNA reads


Minimap is an experimental tool to efficiently find multiple approximate mapping positions between two sets of long biological sequences, such as between DNA reads and reference genomes, between genomes and between long noisy reads. Minimap does not generate alignments as of now and because of this, it is usually tens of times faster than mainstream aligners. It does not replace mainstream aligners, but it can be useful when you want to quickly identify long approximate matches at moderate divergence among a huge collection of sequences. For this task, it is much faster than most existing tools.
