BS-Seeker3: ultrafast pipeline for bisulfite sequencing.

ABSTRACT: DNA methylation is an important epigenetic modification critical in regulation and transgenerational inheritance. The methylation level can be estimated at single-nucleotide resolution by whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (BS-seq; WGBS). Current bisulfite aligners provide pipelines for processing the reads by WGBS; however, few are able to analyze the BS-seqs in a reasonable timeframe that meets the needs of the rapid expansion of epigenome sequencing in biomedical research.We introduce BS-Seeker3, an extensively improved and optimized implementation of BS-Seeker2 that leverages the available computational power of a standard bioinformatics lab. BS-Seeker3 adopts all alignment features of BS-Seeker2. It performs ultrafast alignments and achieves both high accuracy and high mappability, more than twice that of the other aligners that we evaluated. Moreover, BS Seeker 3 is well linked with downstream analyzer MethGo for up to 9 types of genomic and epigenomic analyses.BS-Seeker3 is an accurate, versatile, ultra-fast pipeline for processing bisulfite-converted reads. It also helps the user better visualize the methylation data.
