- Bowtie is a fast and memory-efficient tool for aligning sequencing reads to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s of characters to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes.

- Here is an example of a submission script for Bowtie 2. It assumes you've already built the reference sequence:
#$ -cwd #$ -l h_rt=01:00:00 #$ -pe openmp 4 module load bowtie bowtie2 -p $NSLOTS -x lambda_virus -U $BOWTIE/example/reads/reads_1.fq -S eg1.sam
