2014 Computer applications in the biosciences : CABIOS  
We present BioBloom Tools, a Bloom filter-based sequence-screening tool that is faster than BWA, Bowtie 2 (popular alignment algorithms) and FACS (a membership query algorithm).  ...  Large datasets can be screened for sequences from a specific organism, quickly and with low memory requirements, by a data structure that supports time-and memory-efficient set membership queries.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors thank Genome Canada, British Columbia Cancer Foundation, and Genome British Columbia for their support, and Irene Li, Rene Warren and Karen Mungall for useful discussions.  ...

FastqPuri: high-performance preprocessing of RNA-seq data

Paula Pérez-Rubio, Claudio Lottaz, Julia C. Engelmann
2019 BMC Bioinformatics  
We here present FastqPuri, a light-weight and highly efficient preprocessing tool for fastq data.  ...  FastqPuri is most flexible in filtering undesired biological sequences by offering two approaches to optimize speed and memory usage dependent on the total size of the potential contaminating sequences  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Maria Attenberger and Phu Tran for proof-reading the user manual and testing the software.  ...
