Exactly how fast is PatternHunter when comparing two DNA
sequences?

Answer Posted / guest

PatternHunter was used to compare the Human Genome (3
Gbase) against 16 million reads of the Mouse Genome (3
coverage, 9 Gbase total). It took only 21 days using a
Pentium 3/700 MHz desktop computer with 1G of RAM. On the
same machine and at the same sensitivity, Blast would take
years.
