Sequence search tools for metagenomics
VSEARCH supports DNA sequence searching, clustering, chimera detection, dereplication, pairwise alignment, shuffling, subsampling, sorting and masking. The tool takes advantage of parallelism in the form of SIMD vectorization as well as multiple threads to perform accurate alignments at high speed. VSEARCH uses an optimal global aligner (full dynamic programming Needleman-Wunsch).
