Table 1 User-specified parameters of CASPER and the default values used for experiments

From: CASPER: context-aware scheme for paired-end reads from high-throughput amplicon sequencing

Parameter Default Description
K 17 The size of k-mers (in bp) used to represent contexts around mismatching bases
Ω 10 The minimum length (in bp) of the overlap between forward and reverse reads
γ 0.5 CASPER abandons merging if the mismatch ratio in the overlap is greater than γ
δ 19 Context-based mismatch resolution starts if quality scores differ less than δ
