Just out of pure curiosity. If I have around 60'000'000 short
fragmnents. A typical output of an Illumina GAII experiment. Can your
package align these to a reference genome, such as the Human genome and
if so, how much memory is required to complete this process. How much
time is necessary on a typical GAII server ? That is 16 Gb memory and 4
intel quadcores.

Could you compare the speed of your processing against something like
for instance Eland ?
