VERSE is designed for high-performance read summarization for next generation sequencing. VERSE is 50x faster than HTSeq when computing the same gene counts. It introduces a novel, hierarchical assignment scheme, which allows simultaneous quantification of multiple feature types or annotation levels without repeatedly assigning reads. There is also a set of parameters the user can use to fine-tune the assignment logic. VERSE can be readily incorporated into any existing RNA-Seq analysis pipelines.
