A Rank-Based Sequence Aligner with Applications in Phylogenetic Analysis

Figure 2

The precision-recall curves of the state of the art aligners versus the precision-recall curves of the two LRD aligners, when 50,000 contaminated reads of length 100 from 5 mammals are included.

The two variants of the BOWTIE aligner are based on local and global alignment, respectively. The LRD aligner based on hash tables is a fast approximate version of the original LRD aligner.
