A 25-35% performance improvement for mate pair alignments when using long & short fragment length option -i MP 99[-|,]99 99[-|,]99
This release is primarily about better UMI support with changes in Novoalign for extracting UMIs from 5′ of read and changes in Novosort to implement UMI clustering and correction algorithms similar to that in UMI-Tools, including consensus read generation, at blazingly fast speeds.
