Description : tool to find approximate mapping positions between long sequences
Minimap is an experimental tool to efficiently find multiple approximate
mapping positions between two sets of long sequences, such as between
reads and reference genomes, between genomes and between long noisy reads.
Minimap does not generate alignments as of now and because of this, it is
usually tens of times faster than mainstream aligners.
It does not replace mainstream aligners, but it can be useful to simply
and quickly identify long approximate matches at moderate divergence among
a huge collection of sequences. For this task, it is much faster than most
This software will be maintained by the Debian Med Packaging team.
