Read mappers that we like are

BWA - A much faster aligner developed by Richard Durbin and Heng Li.

Karma - Currently under development here in Michigan; a memory hog, but fast and sensitive.

NovoAlign - Potentially, a much more sensitive, but slow, aligner.

All of these should output SAM format.

Other Aligners

MAQ - The venerable short read aligner developed by Richard Durbin and Heng Li.
