Overview

SSAHA2: Sequence Search and Alignment by Hashing Algorithm

SSAHA2 (Sequence Search and Alignment by Hashing Algorithm) is a pairwise sequence alignment program designed for the efficient mapping of sequencing reads onto genomic reference sequences.

SSAHA2 reads of most sequencing platforms (ABI-Sanger, Roche 454, Illumina-Solexa) and a range of output formats (SAM, CIGAR, PSL etc.) are supported. A pile-up pipeline for analysis and genotype calling is available as a separate package.
