Objective : Gk-Arrays is a C++ library specifically dedicated to indexing reads produced by high-throughput sequencers. This index allows to answer queries centred on reads. It also takes benefits from the input specificity to lower space consumption.
This library is the result of a collaboration with N. Philippe and T. Commes (IGH laboratory, Montpellier), M. Léonard and T. Lecroq (LITIS laboratory, Rouen) and É. Rivals (LIRMM laboratory, Montpellier).
