rNA (randomized Numerical Aligner) is a software able to align the huge amount of data produced by Next Generation Sequencers. The main feature of rNA is the fact that it achieves an accuracy greater than the majority of other tools in a feasible amount of time. rNA works with single as well as paired ends reads and it allows indels and delta-search for better accuracy. A graphical user interface is provided for not command-line-skilled users and an MPI-based version for cluster is in development.

Note: program has ceased development. There is a rewritten application instead called ERNE which is also available in MetaCentrum.

Upcoming modulesystem change alert!

Due to large number of applications and their versions it is not practical to keep them explicitly listed at our wiki pages. Therefore an upgrade of modulefiles is underway. A feature of this upgrade will be the existence of default module for every application. This default choice does not need version number and it will load some (usually latest) version.

You can test the new version now by adding a line

source /cvmfs/software.metacentrum.cz/modulefiles/5.1.0/loadmodules

to your script before loading a module. Then, you can list all versions of rna and load default version of rna as

module avail rna/ # list available modules
module load rna   # load (default) module

If you wish to keep up to the current system, it is still possible. Simply list all modules by

module avail rna

and choose explicit version you want to use.
