1) Traditional sequence mapping tools, such as Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) [1] and BLAST-Like Alignment Tool (BLAT) [19], are unable to cope efficiently with the massive amount of reads generated by the current generation DNA sequencing machines, which make it computationally infeasible for solving the current generation read alignment problem [9, 16, 24].
