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.
