A fist version of our new splice-aware RNA mapper was published on bioRxiv earlier this year.

Graphmap2 is based on Graphmap. It uses the same five-stage read funneling approach to obtain approximate matches between reads and reference, filters them using a variation of the knapsack algorithm and adds several upgrades specific for mapping RNA reads resulting in fine-tuned detection of exons and their boundaries.

Graphmap2 paper has piqued the interest of the research community. Since the it was published, the abstract was viewed close to 2000 times, while the whole paper was viewed close to 600 times.

Graphmap2 paper is available here.
