Summary of papers I have read today

[kSNP v1] K-mers can be used to find single nucleotide polymorphisms.
Gardner, S. N. and T. Slezak (2010). Scalable SNP analyses of 100+ bacterial or viral genomes. J Forensic Res 1, 107.
Summary (from my understanding)
1. Enumerate k-mers
2. Find k-mers with a varying central letter central
3. Align varying k-mers to reference to get coordinates
4. Enjoy

[kSNP v2] An new method (in Perl) discovers variations using an alignment-free variation discovery using k-mers

Sequencing highlights variations unseen by conventional methods for the 2011 European E. coli O104:H4 outbreak.
