Any thoughts? I'm posting here to look for bioinformatics tools that would benefit from a speed up. But if it's more general command-line tools that tend to be bottlenecks, list those too.
If you want to list more or less than three, that's fine too, of course. If possible, prioritize them in order of impact on your daily life. I'm hoping this can be a resource for all those who, like me, might be interested in helping to speed up some tools.
