Table 1 Comparison between SAMMate and SAMtools

From: SAMMate: a GUI tool for processing short read alignments in SAM/BAM format

Running Time Comparison of SAMMate and SAMtool (SAM File: 6 *106
records, 1.03GB)
Software Hardware Platform SAM File Parsing Time Sorting Time Total Time
SAMMate Intel core Duo CPU 2.26 GHz RAM 2GB 60s 43s 132s
SAMtools Intel core Duo CPU 2.26 GHz RAM 2GB 93s 210s 310s
SAMMate Intel core Duo CPU 9300 2.50GHz RAM 4GB 36s 25s 72s
SAMtools Intel core Duo CPU 9300 2.50GHz RAM 4GB 57s 122s 183.8s
  1. SAMMate and SAMtools were compared for the amount of system time needed to generate one human signal map file using a SAM file. Two typical laptops were used for this comparison.
