Rabema evaluation results on the different tools using a data set of 1 million reads of length 100 extracted from the Human genome using ART. The maximum allowed error is 5% (i.e., 5 mismatches in this case). #Reads is the number of reads expected to be mapped with certain Error. The remaining columns for the tools show the percentage of reads detected by each tool out of the #Reads. Invalid mappings (i.e., reads mapped with errors more than the assigned error rate threshold) for Bowtie and Novoalign are 567,531 and 587,542 reads, respectively.
