Hi Luca,

Could you send me an advanced release of your software? I work for the Dutch national center
for scientific computing, and I will give a workshop on Hadoop to BioInformatics on a large
BI conference (http://www.nbic.nl/about-nbic/nbic-conferences/nbic-conference-2011/). Lots
of people there work with BWA and BLAST type applications (among others in the BBMRI project,
which I think CRS4 is involved in as well). So BWA on Hadoop could be a great case study.

Let me know!
