PAUDA is a new approach toward the problem of comparing DNA reads against a database of protein reference sequences that is applicable to very large datasets consisting of hundreds of millions or billions of reads. PAUDA is an acronym for "Protein Alignment Using a DNA Aligner". The approach allows one to harness the high efficiency of DNA read aligners to compute BLASTX-like alignments between sequencing reads and a protein database in a small fraction of the time required by BLASTX. The PAUDA approach makes it possible to process DNA reads at a rate of millions of reads per CPU hour. PAUDA is 10,000 times faster than BLASTX.
