FMLRC, or FM-index Long Read Corrector, is a tool for performing hybrid correction of long read sequencing using the BWT and FM-index of short-read sequencing data. Given a BWT of the short-read sequencing data, FMLRC will build an FM-index and use that as an implicit de Bruijn graph. Each long read is then corrected independently by identifying low frequency k-mers in the long read and replacing them with the closest matching high frequency k-mers in the implicit de Bruijn graph. In contrast to other de Bruijn graph based implementations, FMLRC is not restricted to a particular k-mer size and instead uses a two pass method with both a short "k-mer" and a longer "K-mer". This allows FMLRC to correct through low complexity regions that are computational difficult for short k-mers.
