BSMAP is a short reads mapping software for bisulfite sequencing reads. Bisulfite treatment converts unmethylated Cytosines into Uracils (sequenced as Thymine) and leave methylated Cytosines unchanged, hence provides a way to study DNA cytosine methylation at single nucleotide resolution. BSMAP aligns the Ts in the reads to both Cs and Ts in the reference.
