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.
BM-Map is a powerful NGS genomic loci mapping refiner. It improves the mapping of the multireads (reads mapped to more than one genomic location with similar fidelities), as a refinement step after the general read-alignment is completed.
TreQ is a read mapper for high-throughput DNA sequencing reads, in particular reads from 100 nt to hundreds of nucleotides, and for large edit distance between sequencing read and match in the reference genome.
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.
