Binary package “sim4db” in ubuntu eoan

batch spliced alignment of cDNA sequences to a target genome

 Sim4db performs fast batch alignment of large cDNA (EST, mRNA) sequence
 sets to a set of eukaryotic genomic regions. It uses the sim4 and sim4cc
 algorithms to determine the alignments, but incorporates a fast sequence
 indexing and retrieval mechanism, implemented in the sister package
 'leaff', to speedily process large volumes of sequences.
 .
 While sim4db produces alignments in the same way as sim4 or sim4cc, it
 has additional features to make it more amenable for use with whole-genome
 annotation pipelines. A script file can be used to group pairings between
 cDNAs and their corresponding genomic regions, to be aligned as one run
 and using the same set of parameters. Sim4db also optionally reports more
 than one alignment for the same cDNA within a genomic region, as long
 as they meet user-defined criteria such as minimum length, percentage
 sequence identity or coverage. This feature is instrumental in finding
 all alignments of a gene family at one locus. Lastly, the output is
 presented either as custom sim4db alignments or as GFF3 gene features.
 .
 This package is part of the Kmer suite.
