A Survey of Error-Correction Methods for Next Generation Sequencing
News Feb 20, 2013
Error Correction is important for most next-generation sequencing applications because highly accurate sequenced reads will likely lead to higher quality results.Many techniques for error correction of sequencing data fromnext-gen platforms have been developed in the recent years. However, compared with the fast development of sequencing technologies, there is a lack of standardized evaluation procedure for different error-correction methods, making it difficult to assess their relative merits and demerits. In this article, we provide a comprehensive review of many error-correction methods, and establish a common set of benchmark data and evaluation criteria to provide a comparative assessment.We present experimental results on quality, run-time, memory usage and scalability of several error-correction methods. Apart from providing explicit recommendations useful to practitioners, the review serves to identify the current state of the art and promising directions for future research.

Researchers have performed the most definitive study to date on the relationship between technology use and adolescent mental health, examining data from over 300,000 teenagers and parents in the UK and USA. At most, only 0.4% of adolescent wellbeing is related to screen use - which only slightly surpasses the negative effect of regularly eating potatoes.
George is a zebrafish. Along with Tom and 98 other mates, George swims freely in a laboratory tank at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown (CCU), in Lisbon, Portugal. Question: is it possible to identify, from video images, which fish is which at every moment? Yes, say researchers who have built a software, called idtracker.ai (where “ai” stands for artificial intelligence, or AI) that can do the job quickly and with extreme accuracy.READ MORE
