Run-time comparison of several read merging tools. Our own method Clip&Merge (green) was compared to MergeTrimReads (red), CutAdapt + FLASH (blue), SeqPrep (purple), LeeHom (light green), and AdapterRemoval (yellow). The evaluation was performed on five Mycobacterium leprae data sets and one exemplary human data set (LBK1). Clip&Merge outperforms the other available methods in terms of speed, except for the combination of CutAdapt and FLASH. MergeReadsFastQ was not evaluated on the LBK1 data set, due to the run-time limitations posed by the method, which is shown as a run time of zero for this case
