Motivation: High throughput next generation sequencing technologies enable increasingly fast and affordable sequencing of genomes and transcriptomes, with a broad range of applications. The quality of the sequencing data is crucial for all applications. A significant portion of the data produced contains errors and ever more efficient error correction programs are needed.
Results: We propose RACER (Rapid and Accurate Correction of Errors in Reads), a new software program for correcting errors in sequencing data. RACER has better error correcting performance than existing programs, is faster, and requires less memory. To support our claims, we performed extensive comparison with the existing leading programs on a variety of real datasets.
