Salmon is a tool for quantifying the expression of transcripts using RNA-seq data. Salmon uses new algorithms (specifically, coupling the novel concept of lightweight alignment with a streaming inference algorithm) to provide accurate expression estimates very quickly (i.e.wicked-fast) and while using very little memory. Salmon performs its inference using an expressive and realistic model of RNA-seq data that takes into account the attributes, like position-specfic bias, observed in real experimental data.
