Fast, accurate read mapping with highly compressed output
The Ultra-fast Read Mapper (URMAP) is ~10x faster than BWA
and Bowtie with comparable accuracy on benchmark tests.
URMAP offers faster options when when very high
accuracy is not essential, e.g. for nucleosome position inference in cfDNA
reads. In such applications, speeds ~20x faster than BWA can be achieved
(up to ~1M reads per second on a 24-core server).
URMAP supports SAM
and also SUM, which is ~30x smaller than SAM. SUM can be converted to
SAM, enabling efficient archiving of large datasets.
