PerM 0.4.0 – Read-mapping software based on Periodic Spaced Seeds for both Illumina and SOLiD sequencing data

PerM 0.4.0

:: DESCRIPTION

PerM is a software package which was designed to perform highly efficient genome scale alignments for hundreds of millions of short reads produced by the ABI SOLiD and Illumina sequencing platforms. Today PerM is capable of providing full sensitivity for alignments within 4 mismatches for 50bp SOLID reads and 9 mismatches for 100bp Illumina reads.

SToRM 0.0099 – Seed-based Read Mapping tool for SOLiD or Illumina sequencing data

SToRM 0.0099

:: DESCRIPTION

SToRM is a software tool primarily proposed for mapping SOLiD reads or Illumina reads to a reference genome. It was based on seeding techniques adapted to the statistical characteristics of the reads: the default seeds are for example designed (using the Iedera software) to comply with the properties of the SOLiD color encoding, or Illumina more classical encoding as well as the observed reading error distribution along the read.

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.

SHORE 0.9.3 – Analysis Suite for Illumina Short Read Data

SHORE 0.9.3

:: DESCRIPTION

SHORE is a mapping and analysis pipeline for short DNA sequences produced on Illumina Genome Analyzer and Hiseq 2000, Life Technology SOLiD, 454 Genome Sequencer FLX and PacBio RS platforms. It is designed for projects whose analysis strategy involves mapping of reads to a reference sequence. This reference sequence does not necessarily have to be from the same species, since weighted and gapped alignments allow for accuracy even in diverged regions. SHORE provides various prediction algorithms for genomic polymorphisms, i.e. SNPs, structural variants (indels, CNVs, unsequenced regions), SNPs and SV prediction in heterozygous or pooled samples, as well as peak detection for ChIP-Seq analysis and quantitative analysis of mRNA-Seq and sRNA-Seq.

Mason 0.1.2 – Read Simulator software for Illumina, 454 and Sanger reads

Mason 0.1.2

:: DESCRIPTION

Mason is a read simulator software for Illumina, 454 and Sanger reads. Its features include position specific error rates and base quality values. For Illumina reads, we give a comprehensive analysis with empirical data for the error and quality model. For the other technologies, we use models from the literature. It has been written with performance in mind and can sample reads from large genomes.
