The SeqAn Library and Applications

What is SeqAn? To quote the webpage:

SeqAn is an open source C++ library of efficient algorithms and data structures for the analysis of sequences with the focus on biological data. Our library applies a unique generic design that guarantees high performance, generality, extensibility, and integration with other libraries. SeqAn is easy to use and simplifies the development of new software tools with a minimal loss of performance.

Based on SeqAn multiple applications have been developed (see the this section of the webpage for a comprehensive overview).

Loading the module


will add those to the path.

There are no wrapper scripts in place. So, when launching them concurrently please be sure to avoid I/O contention (e.g. stage-in data to a local disk or ramdisk). You can approach us, if you want to integrate any of those tools into your workflow.

Developers best clone the current version. See the docs for further installation and API instructions.
