To help compare performance of the different software, we are running well controlled benchmarks on simulated datasets. We built different sets of reads on the Human genome (described in Benchmarks) from simple (with no mismatches) to more realistic (indels, variable number of mismatches). On each dataset, we quantified the capacity of the different tools to retrieve all the occurrences of the reads in the reference genome. Special attention was paid to reads uniquely reported and to reads with multiple hits (see Metrics section).

Right now this website is still a work in progress, many more functionalities (such as advanced searching and graphical representation of our results) will be coming soon.

This website is funded and supported by the France Génomique organisation as part of the Work Package 2.2.
