FAR is a software that removes adapter sequences from your sequencing reads by overlap alignment using the Needleman Wunsch algorithm (default) or a quality-based variant of the Needleman Wunsch algorithm. The Needleman Wunsch algorithm is a global exact string-matching algorithm, which offers maximal sensitivity and outperforms heuristic algorithm such as BLAST. Therefore the alignment of an adapter sequence to a read is very accurate.
