  1. Algorithmic software component


  1. Resource Description
    "SAM (Sequence Alignment/Map) format is a generic format for storing large nucleotide sequence alignments. SAM aims to be a format that: is flexible enough to store all the alignment information generated by various alignment programs; is simple enough to be easily generated by alignment programs or converted from existing alignment formats; is compact in file size; allows most of operations on the alignment to work on a stream without loading the whole alignment into memory; allows the file to be indexed by genomic position to efficiently retrieve all reads aligning to a locus."
