    Hi -

    In respect to this section of the bowtie manual:

    Because bowtie-build uses 32-bit pointers internally, it can handle up to a theoretical maximum of 2^32-1 (somewhat more than 4 billion) characters in an index, though, with other constraints, the actual ceiling is somewhat less than that. If your reference exceeds 2^32-1 characters, bowtie-build will print an error message and abort.

    I was wondering if there are plans to update bowtie / bowtie2 - build to use 64-bit pointers. 

    Thank you,
    FL
