Glint is a general purpose nucleic acid sequence aligner.
It is is based on a seed-and-extend alignment approach.
The glint sofwtare is extensively used by the Narcisse genome browser (http://narcisse.toulouse.inra.fr, )
- aligning large chromosomes of genomes
- aligning a genome against itself
- aligning a set of reads against a genome
- aligning a set of paired-end reads against a genome
In addition, glint encapsulates a conversion utility between a large number of formats (fastq, fasta, bam, sam, bed)
The software can be downloaded from the "Files" tab
