Table 1 Comparison between Compareads and BLAST.

From: Compareads: comparing huge metagenomic experiments

  Total Time (min) Mean Time for one intersection (s) Reads Found
BLAST 7200 3600 33 400 091
Compareads 1 33 238 119 35 898 023
Compareads 4 33 230 115 31 997 243
Compareads 10 33 228 114 21 350 268
  1. CPU time per intersection and global CPU time using a single core of an Intel® Xeon® CPU X5550 at 2.67GHz. Reads Found corresponds to the total number of similar reads in all the 120 intersections.
