abstract

  • SUMMARY: Multiple spaced seeds represent the current state-of-the-art for similarity search in bioinformatics, with applications in various areas such as sequence alignment, read mapping, oligonucleotide design, etc. We present SpEED, a software program that computes highly sensitive multiple spaced seeds. SpEED can be several orders of magnitude faster and computes better seeds than the existing leading software programs. AVAILABILITY: The source code of SpEED is freely available at www.csd.uwo.ca/~ilie/SpEED/ CONTACT: ilie@csd.uwo.ca SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
