NAME

       art_SOLiD - Simulation of Applied Biosystems SOLiD Sequencing

DESCRIPTION

       ART  is  a set of simulation tools to generate synthetic next-generation sequencing reads.
       ART simulates sequencing reads by mimicking real sequencing process with  empirical  error
       models or quality profiles summarized from large recalibrated sequencing data.

       art_SOLiD can be used for Simulation of Applied Biosystems SOLiD Sequencing.
