BWA is a software package for mapping low-divergent sequences against
a large reference genome, such as the human genome. It consists of
three algorithms: BWA-backtrack, BWA-SW and BWA-MEM. The first
algorithm is designed for Illumina sequence reads up to 100bp, while
the rest two for longer sequences ranged from 70bp to 1Mbp. BWA-MEM
and BWA-SW share similar features such as long-read support and split
alignment, but BWA-MEM, which is the latest, is generally recommended
for high-quality queries as it is faster and more accurate. BWA-MEM
also has better performance than BWA-backtrack for 70-100bp Illumina
This package contains the source files for use in other programs.
