Random-Permutations-Based Aligner (Prototype)

This is a basic example implementation of a Random-Permutations-Based Aligner/Mapper (RPA P3 / RPM P3).

Download page: RPA_P3.

Please read the readme.txt file and try to run the examples.

This prototype includes several improvements to the basic algorithm. For example, “shortcuts” are used to accelerate the binary search. However, this is a SIMPLIFIED PROTOTYPE.
For the older prototypes used in papers and for more advanced versions, please contact me.
