We are a group of researchers developing various tools for bioinformatics data analysis and processing. Our aim is to tackle complex bioinformatics problems that require a lot of resources (time, memory) and design algorithms (as well as implement them) as efficent as possible (in terms of results quality, time, and memory requirements). Our most popular tools are: KMC (k-mer counter), FAMSA (multiple sequence alignment of proteins for huge datasets), CoLoRd (cutting-edge compressor for 3rd generation sequencing data), Kmer-db (k-mer-based tools for large-scale analyses of nucleotide datasets), AGC (compressor of collections of assembled genomes).
We are a part of the Department of Algorithms and Software of Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland. Nevertheless, some of our tools were prepared in close collaboration with researchers from various universities.
