GATB Programming Day – Rennes – October 24th, 2017

GATB-Core is a modern c++/11 library that natively provides high-performance and memory-efficient operations to handle Fasta/Fastq files, k-mers, bloom filters and de Bruijn graphs.

Learning GATB-Core API (Application Programming Interface) is the purpose of this programming day: to provide you with theoretical concepts and corresponding code snippets to design and write GATB tools.

Date & Location: October 24th, 2017 – IRISA, Rennes, France
