bwa 0.7.17 — Burrows-Wheeler sequence aligner

BWA is a software package for mapping low-divergent sequences against a large reference genome, such as the human genome. It consists of three algorithms: BWA-backtrack, BWA-SW and BWA-MEM. The first algorithm is designed for Illumina sequence reads up to 100bp, while the rest two for longer sequences ranged from 70bp to 1Mbp. BWA-MEM and BWA-SW share similar features such as long-read support and split alignment, but BWA-MEM, which is the latest, is generally recommended for high-quality queries as it is faster and more accurate. BWA-MEM also has better performance than BWA-backtrack for 70-100bp Illumina reads.

bwa-pssm 0.5.11 — Burrows-Wheeler transform-based probabilistic short read mapper

BWA-PSSM is a probabilistic short genomic sequence read aligner based on the use of position specific scoring matrices (PSSM). Like many of the existing aligners it is fast and sensitive. Unlike most other aligners, however, it is also adaptible in the sense that one can direct the alignment based on known biases within the data set. It is coded as a modification of the original BWA alignment program and shares the genome index structure as well as many of the command line options.

bwm-ng 0.6.1 — Console based live network and disk I/O bandwidth monitor

Bandwidth Monitor NG is a small and simple console based live network and disk I/O bandwidth monitor.

byobu 5.127 — Text-based window manager and terminal multiplexer

Byobu is a Japanese term for decorative, multi-panel screens that serve as folding room dividers. The Byobu software includes an enhanced profile, configuration utilities, and system status notifications for the GNU Screen window manager as well as the Tmux terminal multiplexer.

byzanz 0.2-1.f7af3a5 — Desktop recording program

Byzanz is a simple desktop recording program with a command-line interface. It can record part or all of an X display for a specified duration and save it as a GIF encoded animated image file.

bzip2 1.0.6 — High-quality data compression program

bzip2 is a freely available, patent free (see below), high-quality data compressor. It typically compresses files to within 10% to 15% of the best available techniques (the PPM family of statistical compressors), whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six times faster at decompression.
