An Ultra-Fast Alignment Program for Genomic and Protein Sequence Data


MUMmer is one of the bioinformatics programs that is available on RCC systems. The program is designed to align very large genomic and protein sequence datasets using an ultra-fast algorithm. The program is designed specifically to handle aligning entire genomes very quickly.

Using MUMmer on RCC Resources

Using MUMmer on RCC resources does not require a module to be loaded. To run MUMmer, simply type mummer -[OPTIONS] REF_FILE QUERY into the command-line with the appropriate list of options along with the reference file (REF_FILE) and query file or files (QUERY) required for your job. For detailed information on using MUMmer, please refer to the main website where you will find an online manual and a set of tutorials for the program.
