h1. Introduction

h2. Overview

HPG Aligner is an ultrafast and highly sensitive Next-Generation Sequencing read mapping. It has been designed to align short and long reads with a focus in sensitivity, therefore any number of mismatches or indels are allowed. HPG Aligner implements to well known algorithms: _Burows-Wheeler Transform_ (BWT) to speed-up mapping high-quality reads, and _Smith-Waterman_ (SW) to increase sensitivity when reads cannot be mapped using BWT.

Both algorithms have</span> It has been implemented to take advantage of new computing hardware such as multi-core CPUs, SIMD vectorized registers and GPUs, therefore a very high performance runtime is achieved with a low memory footprint.

HPG Aligner has been designed to work</span> with three alignment align modes:

* _*dna*_: for DNA reads mapping
* _*rna*_ : RNA-seq mapping
* _*bs*_ (under development right now): BS-seq mapping

</span> dna, rna and bs. A fourth forth command _*build-index*_ is available to build the indexes for BWT. So,

h2. Architecture and benchmarks results of different modes:

Detailed information about the architecture and benchmarks of different command modes. Although HPG Aligner pipeline is very similar between different modes, some differences exist. Some benchmarks results are presented.
