SNP detection between 2 mouse strains

Discovering SNPs between 2 inbred mouse strains has been tested using the discoSNP strategy. Unlike many other approaches, discoSNP does not require a reference genome. The method is simply based on analyzing a de-Bruijn graph built from raw sequencing datasets.In this experimentation, two 100bp read datasets, representing 2.88 billions of…

Minia on Raspberry PI

In order to demonstrate the low memory footprint of Minia, a read contiger built from the GATB-core library, we experienced the implementation of this software on the Raspberry Pi computer. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer including an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor and 512 megabytes of RAM. Operating…
