advantages and disadvantages of adapter barcoding?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of barcoding adapters for multiplexing versus barcoding the PCR primers? Is adapter barcoding just another way to do multiplex?

"Although indexing has the obvious benefit of multiplexing samples within a run, DNA indexing offers two key additional advantages: direct measure of base-by-base error rate and reduction of arrayto-array or day-to-day variability."
