Trim adapter sequences from Illumina data using heuristic rules
Trimadap is a small tool to trim adapter sequences from Illumina data. It performs SSE2-SW between each read and each adapter sequence and identifies adapter sequences with a few heuristic rules which can be found in the ta_trim1 function in trimadap-mt.c. The default adapters it uses are included in illumina.txt. These are typical Illumina adapters from paired-end sequencing.
