Process of error correction. Here, rLR (raw Long Read) is the raw long read for correction, and ecLR (error-corrected Long Read) corresponds to rLR. There may be many short reads mapped to rLR. L’ is the length of a region covered by the SRs, and L is the length of a corrected region of an ecLR corresponding to SRs mapped to the rLR. Due to the indels in rLRs, L may not be equal to L’. Positions A, B, and C are three example positions covered by 2 SRs, 3 SRs, and 1 SR, respectively. The subsequence between the left-most SR-covered point (left) and the right-most SR-covered point (right) of the ecLR is defined as lrLR (left point-right point Long Read), which is stored in the file corrected_LR.fa, and the full length ecLR is written in the corrected file_LR_full.fa. The uncovered regions are retained. (Pink indicates that the bases came from rLR; light green indicates that the bases came from mapped short reads)
