I writing here because I have some questions for you.
I wondered what the essential differences were between
mate-pair and classic
paired-end are both
paired-end reads, with the difference that :
- For classical
paired-end: the insert size on classic paired-end is smaller (about 500bp)
- while the insert size of
mate-pairis much longer (several Kb) which allows to join the contiguous between them especially is it?
In revenge for the
long-reads, I imagine that they are simply reads that are synthesized with a large read size but that do not allow like the maite-pair to make junctions between contigs?
