I have looked already here: Tools for simulating Oxford Nanopore reads . This doesn't answer my question, because it lists a few Nanopore read simulators, but I have specific problems with each of them.
I am trying to simulate some Nanopore reads. I could use NanoSim, but that tool seems to be very difficult to use. I only have a reference genome, but you need training data as well? anyone have any experience with this? I can only find bacterial and yeast data (and I want to try this on Arabidopsis thaliana reference)
Another promising tool I found, was a paper for SNaReSim, reference here: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8031171. However I cannot seem to find the tool itself, which is also mentioned in the other stackexchange post I mentioned above.
Does anyone have experience simulating PacBio reads with NanoSim, SNaReSim or maybe another tool? Because I am not sure about which one to use. Others like SiLiCO or ReadSim were updated 2 years ago and I believe that Nanopore technology has improved a lot in that time.
To clarify a bit on why I want to simulate data: I just want to test several tools about SV calling and simulating for a school project. All of the points mentioned in the comments I will use for the discussion, but I wanted to focus on 1 read simulator per technology and didn't know what to use, because Nanopore is difficult to simulate in that sense. That was already known to me.
