MUMmer is a system for rapidly aligning entire genomes, whether
in complete or draft form. For example, MUMmer 3.0 can find all
20-basepair or longer exact matches between a pair of 5-megabase genomes
in 13.7 seconds, using 78 MB of memory, on a 2.4 GHz Linux desktop
computer. MUMmer can also align incomplete genomes; it handles the 100s
or 1000s of contigs from a shotgun sequencing project with ease, and
will align them to another set of contigs or a genome using the NUCmer
program included with the system. If the species are too divergent for
DNA sequence alignment to detect similarity, then the PROmer program
can generate alignments based upon the six-frame translations of both
input sequences.
