The new version of the GATB-CORE library 1.0.6 is now available.

This version provides :

  • speed up from x2 to x3 for kmer counting and graph construction phases (optimizations based on minimizers and improved Bloom filters). GATB's k-mer counter has been improved using techniques from KMC2, to achieve competitive running times compared to KMC2.
  • ability to store arbitrary information associated to each kmer of the graph, enabled by a minimal perfect hash function (costs only 2.61 bits/kmer of memory)
  • improved API with new possibilities (banks and kmers management)
  • many new snippets showing how to use the library.

The library can be downloaded here.

The reference library API is available here.

Tools based on the library can be found here.

Erwan made some benchmarks and I think they look great. It appears that the speed-up in the new version is even more than 3x (around 3-4x).

Here, we compare GATB-core version 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 on ERR599057 (Tara Ocean, 32 Gbp) with 8 cores.
