“GenoDedup” @ InfoBlender

Date: 14/07/2020

Vinicius Vielmo Cogo, LASIGE researcher, gave an invited talk, titled "GenoDedup: Similarity-Based Deduplication and Delta-Encoding for Genome Sequencing Data" at Infoblender Webinar. The event took place on July 9, online.

GenoDedup balances space savings and restore performance and is the first method that integrates efficient similarity-based deduplication and specialized delta-encoding for genome sequencing data. This solution currently achieves 67.8% of the reduction gains of SPRING (i.e., the best-specialized tool in this metric) and restores data 1.62x faster than SeqDB (i.e., the fastest competitor) and restores data 9.96x faster than SPRING and compresses files 2.05x more than SeqDB.

InfoBlender is a periodic seminar organized by HASLab (INESC-TEC/UMinho) that aims to gather people from academia and industry, as well as the general public, to present and discuss interesting ideas, publications, work in progress or rehearsal talks.
