NGS-Indel Coder v2.0: A Streamlined Pipeline to Code Indel Characters in Phylogenomic Data.

Journal: Methods In Molecular Biology (Clifton, N.J.)

Hypothesized evolutionary insertions and deletions in nucleic acid sequences (indels) contain significant phylogenetic information and can be integrated in phylogenomic analyses. However, assemblies of short reads obtained from next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies can contain errors that result in falsely inferred indels that need to be detected and omitted to avoid inclusion in phylogenetic analysis. Here, we detail the commands that comprise a new version of the NGS-Indel Coder pipeline, which was developed to validate indels using assembly read depth.
