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.
USeq is a collection of software tools for for both low and high level analysis of next generation, ultra high throughput signature sequencing data from the Solexa, SOLiD, and 454 platforms. Initial emphasis: chIP-seq and RNA-Seq with FDR estimations.
SOCS (short oligonucleotide color space) is a SOLiD read mapper with bisulfite sequencing support.SOCS performs ungapped alignment of SOLiD (color space) sequencing reads against reference sequences. Modes are available for detecting short sequence-space variants (such as SNPs) and for detecting unlimited numbers of bisulfite-induced nucleotide substitutions for 5mC methylation studies.
miRNA-MATE is a package designed specifically for mapping and summarizing miRNA (and isomiR) data from SOLiD sequencing data sets. MicroRNAs can be particularly challenging to map because of the limited information content in a 22nt molecule.
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.
