This package addresses the problem to interpret the results from the
latest (2010) DNA sequencing technologies. Those will yield fairly
short stretches and those cannot be interpreted directly. It is the
challenge for tools like Bowtie to give a chromosomal location to the
short stretches of DNA sequenced per run.
Bowtie aligns short DNA sequences (reads) to the human genome at a rate
of over 25 million 35-bp reads per hour. Bowtie indexes the genome with
a Burrows-Wheeler index to keep its memory footprint small: typically
about 2.2 GB for the human genome (2.9 GB for paired-end).
This package provides some example data to work with bowtie.
