The tagger project aims at providing a tool to search entire genomes or mRNA reference sequence databases with sequence tags (or sequence branches) for exact matches.
The tagger tool code was originally written by Christian Iseli at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) and further developed by Giovanna Ambrosini at the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC). ISREC and LICR are partners of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB).
Tagger is a program which allows fast mapping of short sequences against genomics (or genomics-like, e.g. mRNA) databases. Technically, the program is much faster than other existing mapping solutions, because it only searches for exact matches within genomic sequences. This feature is essential for high-throughput genomics/transcriptomics data analysis.
