Read mapping on de Bruijn graphs

Background. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has dramatically enhanced our ability to sequence genomes, but not to assemble them. In practice, many published genome sequences remain in the state of a large set of contigs. Each contig describes the …

Scalable and Versatile k-mer Indexing for High-Throughput Sequencing Data

Philippe et al. (2011) proposed a data structure called Gk arrays for indexing and querying large collections of high-throughput sequencing data in main-memory. The data structure supports versatile queries for counting, locating, and analysing the …
