Hi,

Are there thread safe C/C++ library for sequence alignment?

I was checking out Seqan, but in the documentation it wasn't explicitly stated that it's thread safe for alignments.

I'm wondering if there are other libraries available?

Thanks!

The alignment functions in the fasta package (http://faculty.virginia.edu/wrpearson/fasta) are thread safe, and you are welcome to use the alignment functions you need (e.g. do_walign() in the dropgsw2.c file for Smith-Waterman, or bd_align() for banded local alignment, or any of the functions in wm_align.c). Unfortunately, they are not very well documented, but their overall structure is relatively simple.

They are definitely thread safe; both the score functions and alignment functions in the FASTA package are fully threaded.

Seqan's alignment's OK for multi-threading. Here's what one of the authors said.
