  Description     : ultrafast universal RNA-seq aligner
 Spliced Transcripts Alignment to a Reference (STAR) software based on a
 previously undescribed RNA-seq alignment algorithm that uses sequential
 maximum mappable seed search in uncompressed suffix arrays followed by
 seed clustering and stitching procedure. STAR outperforms other aligners
 by a factor of >50 in mapping speed, aligning to the human genome 550
 million 2 × 76 bp paired-end reads per hour on a modest 12-core server,
 while at the same time improving alignment sensitivity and precision. In
 addition to unbiased de novo detection of canonical junctions, STAR can
 discover non-canonical splices and chimeric (fusion) transcripts, and is
 also capable of mapping full-length RNA sequences. Using Roche 454
 sequencing of reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction amplicons,
 the authors experimentally validated 1960 novel intergenic splice
 junctions with an 80-90% success rate, corroborating the high precision
 of the STAR mapping strategy.
