Fig 2

Performance comparison on five manipulations of FASTA file.

Dataset A consists of 67,748 DNA sequences with average length of 41 Kb and dataset B is the human genome with 24 chromosomes, one mitochondrial sequence and 169 scaffolds. All tests were repeated three times, and the average time or memory usage was computed. See supplementary data for details of test data and commands.
