Phylogeny-Aware Placement and Alignment Methods for Short Reads

Berger, Simon A.

Abstract:
In recent years bioinformatics has entered a new phase: New sequencing methods, generally referred to as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) have become widely available. This thesis introduces algorithms for phylogeny aware analysis of short sequence reads, as generated by NGS methods in the context of metagenomic studies. A considerable part of this work focuses on the technical (w.r.t. performance) challenges of these new algorithms, which have been developed specifically to exploit parallelism.
