pardre 2.2.5 Parallel tool to remove duplicate DNA reads
ParDRe is a parallel tool to remove duplicate genetic sequence reads. Duplicate reads can be seen as identical or nearly identical sequences with some mismatches. This tool lets users avoid the analysis of unnecessary reads, reducing the time of subsequent procedures with the dataset (e.g. assemblies, mappings, etc.). The tool is implemented with MPI in order to exploit the parallel capabilities of multicore clusters. It is faster than multithreaded counterparts (end of 2015) for the same number of cores and, thanks to the message-passing technology, it can be executed on clusters.
