Hi Don,

After quickly browsing the Maq's user manual, I get the feeling that its
main feature is not assembly (in particular, it can not compute de novo
assemblies). Its prime function is mapping, and its advantage compared
to other mapping programs is its extended workflow that facilities such
as polymorphism analysis.

How about "maps short polymorphic reads to reference biological sequences".

For me, "read"(s) is an important keyword that I would like to keep in
the description if we do not use the expansion of the acronym that is
used to name the package.

Have a nice day,
