[…] we generated ten 16s rrna simulated datasets (simclone10_1, simclone10_2, simclone15_1, simclone15_2 and simclone20, simclone30, simclone50, simclone100, simclone150, simclone200) using the software 454sim , which simulates 454 data using configurable statistical models that can accommodate different number of sequence reads, sequence lengths, errors rates, and abundance. provides the detailed […]

[…] the corresponding blosum(x) substitution probabilities [], where x denotes the clustering identity threshold used. in order to supply query sequences, 1,000 454 titanium reads were simulated by the “454sim” simulator [], using default settings. finally, 4216 parameter combinations were evaluated for all seven degrees of difficulty, by alignment of the 1,000 reads to each of the seven target […]
