  Description     : fast genome and metagenome distance estimation using MinHash

Mash uses MinHash locality-sensitive hashing to reduce large biosequences to
a representative sketch and rapidly estimate pairwise distances between
genomes or metagenomes. Mash sketch databases effectively delineate known
species boundaries, allow construction of approximate phylogenies, and can be
searched in seconds using assembled genomes or raw sequencing runs from
Illumina, Pacific Biosciences, and Oxford Nanopore.
For metagenomics, Mash scales to thousands of samples and can replicate Human
Microbiome Project and Global Ocean Survey results in a fraction of the time.

This package will be maintained within the Debian Med Packaging Team.
