Bug#775820: ITP: vsearch -- tool for processing metagenomic sequences

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@debian.org>

* Package name    : vsearch
  Version         : 1.0.7
  Upstream Author : Torbjørn Rognes
* URL             : https://github.com/torognes/vsearch/
* License         : Affero-GPL-3
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : tool for processing metagenomic sequences
 Open and free 64-bit multithreaded tool for processing metagenomic sequences,
 including searching, clustering, chimera detection, dereplication, sorting,
 masking and shuffling
 The aim of this project is to create an alternative to the USEARCH tool
 developed by Robert C. Edgar (2010). The new tool should:
  - have open source code with an appropriate open source license
  - be free of charge, gratis
  - have a 64-bit design that handles very large databases and much more
    than 4GB of memory
  - be as accurate or more accurate than usearch
  - be as fast or faster than usearch

Remark this package was prepared by Tim Booth from Bio-Linux and finalised
by myself.  It will be maintained in the Debian Med team at
