An Improved Protocol for Sequencing of Repetitive Genomic Regions and Structural Variations Using Mutagenesis and Next Generation Sequencing

PLoS One
PMCID: 3422288
PMID: 22912860
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0043359

[…] is proportional to the number of their descendants after the final pcr; thus we take into account the fluctuation in coverage due to the amplification., we simulated illumina sequencing by using the simngs package version 1.5 , with default parameters and trained on intensity data produced by a paired-end run with a read length of 101 on an illumina hiseq sequencer. the simngs package simulates […]
