Sambamba is a high performance modern robust and fast tool for working with SAM and BAM files. Sambamba is written in the D programming language and because of efficient use of modern multicore CPUs it is usually much faster than samtools. Current parallelised functionality is an important subset of samtools functionality, including view, index, sort, markdup, and depth.
