Default Difference between coverage, depth of coverage and targeted coverage

Hi everybody,

I have a question about coverage, depth of coverage and targeted coverage.
What is the difference between those three?

If the targeted coverage, for example, is X25000, does it mean that the amount of reads is 25,000 reads?
And which one is better or more specific, X1000 coverage or X25000?

I am sorry if I perhaps ask a stupid question, please not that I am very new at this and my background is not bioinformatics.

Regards,
Hanco
