MOTIVATION: The accuracy of reference genomes is important for downstream analysis but a low error rate requires expensive manual interrogation of the sequence. Here, we describe a novel algorithm (Iterative Correction of Reference Nucleotides) that iteratively aligns deep coverage of short sequencing reads to correct errors in reference genome sequences and evaluate their accuracy. RESULTS: Using Plasmodium falciparum (81% A + T content) as an extreme example, we show that the algorithm is ...Expand abstract
