This short description is actually the expansion of the `Maq' acronym. I
usually like to expand acronyms in the short description, but if it is
not appropriate, I will change it.

The sourceforge description is: "map and assemble fixed-length
Solexa/SOLiD reads in a fast and accurate way", but it is probably too
technical in the "If you can't understand it, you don't need it" way.

How about "builds assembly by mapping short reads to reference
sequences"? (cut from Upsteam's website) The mapping is definitely not
genetic, and if the authors avoided "genomic", there is probably a good
reason for.

Have a nice day,
