Firepony is a base quality score recalibrator for aligned read data sets. It recalculates the quality scores for each nucleotide in a SAM/BAM file based on the original quality data generated by the sequencer plus the empirical data obtained by running alignment.
The algorithm is a re-engineering of the base quality score recalibrator in the Genome Analysis Toolkit. It generates identical results, but runs much faster.
