mrsFAST is designed to map short reads to reference genome assemblies; in a fast and memory-efficient manner. mrsFAST is a cache-oblivous short read mapper that optimizes cache usage to get higher performance.
Currently Supported Features:
- Mistmatches, No indels
- Paired-end Mapping Mode
- Discordant Paired-end Mapping Mode (to be used in conjuction with Variation Hunter)
