Maqview is graphical read alignment viewer. It is specifically designed
for the Maq alignment file and allows you to see the mismatches, base
qualities and mapping qualities. Maqview is nothing fancy as Consed or
GAP, but just a simple viewer for you to see what happens in a
particular region.
In comparison to tgap-maq, the text-based read alignment viewer written
by James Bonfield, Maqview is faster and takes up much less memory and
disk space in indexing. This is possibly because tgap aims to be a
general-purpose viewer but Maqview fully makes use of the fact that a
Maq alignment file has already been sorted. Maqview is also efficient in
viewing and provides a command-line tool to quickly retrieve any region
in an Maq alignment file.
