MZPAQ: a FASTQ data compression tool.

Due to the technological progress in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), the amount of genomic data that is produced daily has seen a tremendous increase. This increase has shifted the bottleneck of genomic projects from sequencing to computation and specifically storing, managing and analyzing the large amount of NGS data. Compression tools can reduce the physical storage used to save large amount of genomic data as well as the bandwidth used to transfer this data. Recently, DNA sequence compression has gained much attention among researchers.In this paper, we study different techniques and algorithms used to compress genomic data. Most of these…
