A comparative study of k spectrum based error correction methods for next generation sequencing data analysis

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 4965716
PMID: 27461106
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-016-0068-0

[…] ets.Previous evaluations showed that Musket was consistently one of the top performing correctors for both simulated and real datasets when it was compared with several well-regarded programs: HiTEC, SHREC, Coral, Quake, Reptile, DecGPU, and SGA []. Here, we also demonstrated that Musket yielded better performance metrics than Reptile. When authors of Bless [], Trowel [], and Lighter [] performed […]


Biochemical and bioinformatic methods for elucidating the role of RNA–protein interactions in posttranscriptional regulation

Brief Funct Genomics

[…] ly and mapping quality. Compared with deleting information, the general concept of correcting reads to decrease the number of mismatches relative to the reference is thus more powerful. Tools such as SHREC [] or Quake [] identify different types of errors such as amplification or sequencing errors within genomic DNA sequence reads and return corrected reads that can subsequently be mapped less amb […]
