  Description     : CoNvex Gap-cost alignMents for Long Reads

 ngmlr is a long-read mapper designed to sensitively
 align PacBilo or Oxford Nanopore to (large) reference
 genomes. It was designed to quickly and correctly
 align the reads, including those spanning (complex)
 structural variations. Ngmlr uses an SV aware k-mer
 search to find approximate mapping locations for a
 read and then a banded Smith-Waterman alignment
 algorithm to compute the final alignment. Ngmlr
 uses a convex gap cost model that penalizes gap
 extensions for longer gaps less than for shorter
 ones to compute precise alignments.

I take the responsibility to maintain this package.
