Kmer-db: instant evolutionary distance estimation.

08:00 EDT 9th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Kmer-db: instant evolutionary distance estimation."

Kmer-db is a new tool for estimating evolutionary relationship on the basis of k-mers extracted from genomes or sequencing reads. Thanks to an efficient data structure and parallel implementation, our software estimates distances between 40,715 pathogens in less than 7 minutes (on a modern workstation), 26 times faster than Mash, its main competitor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The act of knowing or the recognition of a distance by recollective thought, or by means of a sensory process which is under the influence of set and of prior experience.

Observation and aquisition of physical data from a distance by viewing and making measurements from a distance or receiving transmitted data from observations made at distant location.

A stochastic process such that the conditional probability distribution for a state at any future instant, given the present state, is unaffected by any additional knowledge of the past history of the system.

A direct communication system, usually telephone, established for instant contact. It is designed to provide special information and assistance through trained personnel and is used for counseling, referrals, and emergencies such as poisonings and threatened suicides.

The process of reciprocal evolutionary change occurring between pairs of species or among groups of species as they interact.
