[…] equences and the algorithm uses a dynamically updated cluster consensus when aligning reads []. Coral and ECHO are multiple alignment based techniques [], while HECTOR is a homopolymer spectrum based error corrector, with a multistage correction workflow []. Another useful software is FlowClus, which provides feedback on the denoising process, allowing the user to apply more suitable analysis para […]
