Performance on Real Data Sets. Performance comparison between different methods, while using three different data sets. Set 1 is a set of 1 million reads of length 160 bp obtained from a human genome sequenced within the 1000 Genomes Project. Set 2 is composed of 500,000 reads of length 101 bp generated from a chimpanzee genome, and Set 3 is from an orangutan genome with reads of length 75 bp (500,000 reads). We select edit distance values from 1 to 5 in order to compare the speed (time), sensitivity (Reads Mapped) and comprehensiveness (Map Locations) of each mapper.
