- 'Ab initio' splice junctions --un-annotated, non-canonical, distal exons, chimeric ...
- Unique and multiple mappers
- Any read length, any number of splice junctions per read
- Any (reasonable) number of mismatches and indels
- Alignment scoring utilizing Illumina quality scores
- "Auto" trimming of poor quality ends
- poly-A tails detection
- Very Fast: human 75-mer reads: 60 Million read per hour
