Spaced seed coverage
In the field of spaced seed statistics these last two years, a new challenge is the selection of a set of spaced seeds that are at the same time sensitive, while providing a stable similarity measure for alignment-free genomic sequence comparison. One of the most stable estimators is the coverage provided by these seeds. We have proposed an efficient method to build the coverage automaton, in order to compute several statistics efficiently. This work was implemented in Iedera and published in the AISM journal  .
