Thank you Nils!

About Q2: so, if I need Illumina-like synthetic data, it won't make a difference to use “wgsim” or “dwgsim”?

About Q3: can you elaborate more about “Random read placement”? My understanding is that the error rate is pre-specified, then when the reads are generated, in each position, the nt can be changed according to the error rate. Is this related to “Random read placement” or you meant something else?

Thanks again
