bbmap 35.82 Aligner and other tools for short sequencing reads

This package provides bioinformatic tools to align, deduplicate, reformat, filter and normalize DNA and RNA-seq data. It includes the following tools: BBMap, a short read aligner for DNA and RNA-seq data; BBNorm, a kmer-based error-correction and normalization tool; Dedupe, a tool to simplify assemblies by removing duplicate or contained subsequences that share a target percent identity; Reformat, to convert reads between fasta/fastq/scarf/fasta+qual/sam, interleaved/paired, and ASCII-33/64, at over 500 MB/s; and BBDuk, a tool to filter, trim, or mask reads with kmer matches to an artifact/contaminant file.
