Fast and sensitive mapping of nanopore sequencing reads with GraphMap

“Here we present GraphMap, a mapping algorithm designed to analyse nanopore sequencing reads, which progressively refines candidate alignments to robustly handle potentially high-error rates and a fast graph traversal to align long reads with speed and high precision (>95%). “”GraphMap alignments enabled single-nucleotide variant calling on the human genome with increased sensitivity (15%) over the next best mapper, precise detection of structural variants from length 100bp to 4kbp, and species and strain-specific identification of pathogens using MinION reads.”
