FLASH, Fast Length Adjustment of SHort reads, is a very accurate fast tool to merge paired-end reads from fragments that are shorter than twice the length of reads. The extended length of reads has a significant positive impact on improvement of genome assemblies.
FLASH merges reads at a very high accuracy.
FLASH accuracy on one million 100bp long synthetic pairs generated from fragments with a mean length of 180bp, normally distributed with a standard deviation of 20bp:
When run in single-threaded mode:
It takes 120 seconds to process one million 100-bp long pairs on a server with 256GB of RAM and a six-core 2.4GHz AMD Opteron CPU.
It takes 129 seconds to process one million 100-bp long pairs on a desktop with 2GB of RAM and a dual-core Intel Xeon 3.00GHz CPU.
Time is linearly proportional to the read length and the number of reads.
