RAMICS: fast high-throughput sequence alignment

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

RAMICS is a method developed at SANBI that undertakes fast and highly accurate mapping/alignment of coding sequence reads in a biologically relevant manner.  It identifies, and accounts for, PCR and sequencing induced errors resulting in an alignment that maintains the correct reading frame thereby enabling SNPs to be distinguished from noise. The challenge presented by …
