A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Contaminant oligonucleotide sequences such as primers and adapters can occur in both ends of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) reads. AlienTrimmer was developed in order to detect and remove such contaminants. Based on the decomposition of specified alien nucleotide sequences into k-mers, AlienTrimmer is able to determine whether such alien k-mers are occurring in one or in both read ends by using a simple polynomial algorithm. Therefore, AlienTrimmer can process typical HTS single- or paired-end files with millions of reads in several minutes with very low computer resources. Based on the analysis of both simulated and real-case Illumina®, 454™ and Ion Torrent™ read data, we show that AlienTrimmer performs with excellent accuracy and speed in comparison with other trimming tools.
