Table 2 Summary of error-correction methods’ parameters and publication details. Error-correction methods are sorted by the year of publication (indicated in the column “Published year”). We documented the underlying algorithm (indicated in the column “Underlying algorithm”), version of the error correction tool used (indicated in the column “Version”), and the name of the software tool (indicated in the column “Software tool”)

From: Benchmarking of computational error-correction methods for next-generation sequencing data
