Murasaki is an anchor alignment program that is

  • exteremely fast (17 CPU hours for whole Human x Mouse genome (with 40 nodes: 35 wall minutes), or 8 mammals in 21 CPU hours (42 wall minutes))
  • scalable (Arbitrarily parallelizable across multiple nodes using MPI)
  • memory efficient. (Even a single node with 16GB of ram can handle over 1Gbp of sequence)
  • unlimited by pattern length or selection
  • repeat tolerant
