Mate-pair refers to the way the sample was prepared, but are sequenced the same way as regular paired end libraries. Regular PE reads are outside in (L>====<R) but because of the way mate-pair libraries are prepared, MP sequences are actually inside out (L<====>R) because of the circularization step.
