This package of tools encompasses many of the common pieces of software required for the analysis of short read sequences produced by the Second Generation DNA sequencing machines. (eg. Illumina/Solexa sequencers, ABI SOLiD and 454). The focus of this project is on post-alignment analysis. This project includes interpreters for most common aligners and SNP callers and is able to use input from a wide variety of formats.

There are several major components to this package:

This package also includes work used by Anthony Fejes in fulfilling the requirements of his Graduate Thesis work at the University of British Columbia/BC Cancer's Genome Science Centre.
