Novoalign is a highly accurate program for mapping next-generation sequencing reads to a reference database. It is an aligner for single-ended and paired-end reads from the Illumina Genome Analyser. Novoalign finds global optimum alignments using full Needleman-Wunsch algorithm with affine gap penalties.
Limited functionality and single-threaded performance are available without a paid license. Novoalign must only be used for academic/non-profit research and the results of the analyses must published in peer-reviewed journals as requested by the software manufacturer in Novoalign FAQ.
Note: Multiple software packages are made available via the novoalign module: novocraft (Novoalign), novoalignCS, novomethyl, and novosort.
Note: Multiple software packages are made available via the novoalign module: novoalignMPI and novoalignCSMPI.
