Spectrum-preserving string sets and simplitigs with Amatur Rahman and Karel Břinda (#42)

February 28, 2020

In this episode, we hear from Amatur Rahman and Karel Břinda, who independently of one another released preprints on the same concept, called simplitigs or spectrum-preserving string sets. Simplitigs offer a way to efficiently store and query large sets of k-mers—or, equivalently, large de Bruijn graphs.
