SNAP Sequence Aligner

SNAP is a new sequence aligner that is 10-100x faster and simultaneously more accurate than existing tools like BWA, Bowtie2 and SOAP2. It runs on commodity x86 processors, and supports a rich error model that lets it cheaply match reads with more differences from the reference than other tools. This gives SNAP up to 2x lower error rates than existing tools and lets it match larger mutations that they may miss.
