Title pIRS
Short Description Profile-based Illumina pair-end reads simulator
Long Description It simulates Illumina reads with empirical Base-Calling and GC%-depth profiles trained from real re-sequencing data. It considers error & quality distributions, as well as coverage bias patterns. In addition, pIRS also comes with a tool to simulate the heterozygous diploid genomes.
