Description:ARC based grid implementaion of SHRiMP aligner.
Abstract:SHRiMP is a software package for mapping reads from a donor genome against a target (reference) genome. SHRiMP was primarily developed to work with short reads produced by Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) machines. SHRiMP sopports both letter space (Illumina/Solexa) and colour space (AB SOLiD) reads. Both single-end and paired end reads can be analysed.
The ARC middleware interface of SHRiMP automatically splits the query and target sequences into sub-sets that can be aligned in ARC based distributed computing environment. Once the subtasks are ready the results are automatically merged together.
