Rbowtie R package provides an R interface to the
bowtie short-read aligner by Langmead et al. (2009), as well as to

QuasR bioconductor package. We recommend to use the
QuasR package instead of using
The source code for bowtie v1.3.0 was obtained from https://github.com/BenLangmead/bowtie/archive/v1.3.0.tar.gz on November 2, 2020. The folders genomes, reads, doc, indexes and scripts were not included into the package to reduce its size.
