YAHA is a flexible, sensitive and accurate hash-based DNA aligner for relatively long queries that operates in three distinct modes. It can output all the alignments found for each query, only the set of alignments that optimally cover each query, or add alignments that are similar to those that optimally cover the query. These latter two modes are especially useful for finding split-read mappings used to accurately identify structural variation events.
If you publish research that uses yaha you have to cite it as follows:
