    Most importantly, sqzlib is fully compatible with klib/kseq.h one of the highest performance fastA/Q parsers. This means that any application that uses kseq.h for fastA/Q parsing, can be easily modified to use sqzlib instead. You can find patched versions of seqstats, minimap2, and bwa-mem2 in my github, or you can patch them yourself with the included patches.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing sqzlib and minimap2 you can also consider the following projects:

bwa-mem2 - The next version of bwa-mem

Klib - A standalone and lightweight C library
