    SInC for SNPs, Indels and CNVs

    This multi-variant simulator and read-generator tool efficiently generates single- and paired-end reads with user-defined insert size, and is currently optimized to simulate short sequence reads with deep coverage for large genomes, in a limited infrastructure setup.

BMC Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology.

BMC Bioinformatics is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
