Bug#425111: ITP: ssaha -- Sequence Search and Alignment by Hashing Algorithm

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Charles Plessy <charles-debian-nospam@plessy.org>

  Package name    : ssaha
  Version         : 3.3
  Upstream Author : Anthony J. Cox <anthony.j.cox@talk21.com>
  URL             : http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ssahausers/files/ssaha_v33.tar.gz
  License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Sequence Search and Alignment by Hashing Algorithm

 SSAHA is a software tool for very fast matching and alignment of DNA
 sequences. It achieves its fast search speed by converting sequence
 information into a `hash table' data structure, which can then be
 searched very rapidly for matches. It was published by Ning Z,
 Cox AJ, Mullikin JC in Genome Res. 2001;11;1725-9.

SSAHA is the only free software of its category (fast search of nearly
indentical sequences). The popular alternative, BLAT, is restricted to
non-commercial use.

Only version 3.3 can be build with gcc 4.1 ; it was released on the
SSAHA users mailing list, hence the strange URL.

I will first finish the work on two other ITPs (mirbase, mafft) before
undertaking this one. Do not hesitate to hijack it if you want to get
things done faster !
