  1. Each aligner was used to align the first set of five simulated sequencing samples (10 million 100 base-pair reads) against each of the three genome libraries using optimal parameters. The average run time, sensitivity, and specificity as well as confidence intervals for each alignment are reported. BWA failed to run to completion with the bacterial library.
