- TASR 1.5 (Nov 20, 2013)
TASR v1.5 no longer constrains the use of 15-character words derived from a target sequence for interrogating candidate reads. User-defined target word length values are now passed to the algorithm using the -k option. Using larger -k values should help speed up the search when using long sequence reads, since it will restrict the sequence space accordingly. Note: whereas specificity and speed may increase with k, a higher k value may yield more sparse/fragmented assemblies. Proper experimentation with various -k values are warranted.
