    to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s
    of characters, and particularly good at aligning to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes.
    Bowtie 2 indexes the genome with an FM Index to keep its memory footprint small: for the human genome,
    its memory footprint is typically around 3.2 GB. Bowtie 2 supports gapped, local, and paired-end alignment modes.
    Software Category: bio
    For detailed information, visit the Bowtie2
    website.
    Available Versions The current installation of Bowtie2

  • BWA on Rivanna

    Description Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) is an efficient program that aligns
    relatively short nucleotide sequences against a long reference sequence such as the human genome.
    BWA provides three alignment algorithms:
    BWA-backtrack BWA-SW BWA-MEM The BWA-backtrack algorithm is exclusively used for short sequence reads up to 100bp, the latter two can be used for sequence reads of up to 1MB. The BWA-MEM algorithm can also be used for high-quality short Illumina sequence reads (< 100bp) in many cases with better performance compared to the original BWA-backtrack algorithm. Therefore, the more universal BWA-MEM algorithm is recommended as a starting point for most alignment scenarios.
