Default Differences in Consensus Sequences

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to automate some data collection, and I need a consensus sequence generator.

Thus far, I've been using Geneious's built in consensus sequence generator, which has worked well. The only issue is that it is not command line accessible.

I found that the samtools mpileup command shown at generates a consensus sequence of the same length as the Geneious consensus but is only ~93% identical.

What might be causing these differences? Does anyone else know of a good standalone consensus sequence generator?
