Pairwise aligner for genomic and spliced nucleotide sequences

Minimap2 is a versatile sequence alignment program that aligns DNA or mRNA sequences against a large reference database. Typical use cases include 1 mapping PacBio or Oxford Nanopore genomic reads to the human genome 2 finding overlaps between long reads with error rate up to ~15 3 splice-aware alignment of PacBio Iso-Seq or Nanopore cDNA or Direct RNA readsagainst a reference genome 4 aligning Illumina single- or paired-end reads 5 assembly-to-assembly alignment 6 full-genome alignment between two closely related species with divergence below ~15
