Title InSilicoSeq
Short Description A sequencing simulator
Long Description InSilicoSeq is a sequencing simulator producing realistic Illumina reads. Primarily intended for simulating metagenomic samples, it can also be used to produce sequencing data from a single genome. InSilicoSeq is written in python, and use kernel density estimators to model the read quality of real sequencing data. InSilicoSeq support substitution, insertion and deletion errors. If you don't have the use for insertion and deletion error a basic error model is provided.
