Approximate String Matching with Compressed Indexes

  title={Approximate String Matching with Compressed Indexes},
  author={Lu{\'i}s M. S. Russo and Gonzalo Navarro and Arlindo L. Oliveira and Pedro Morales},
A compressed full-text self-index for a text T is a data structure requiring reduced space and able to search for patterns P in T . It can also reproduce any substring of T , thus actually replacing T . Despite the recent explosion of interest on compressed indexes, there has not been much progress on functionalities beyond the basic exact search. In this paper we focus on indexed approximate string matching (ASM), which is of great interest, say, in bioinformatics. We study ASM algorithms for… CONTINUE READING
