I am trying to simulate sanger sequencing reads with mason. The idea is to used mason to generate random snps based on a provided error.
mason sanger --read-length-error 0.1 test.fast
I am not sure what I am doing wrong but i get this error message
reference file: test.fasta Loading reference sequence from "test.fasta" Simulating for haplotype #0... Building haplotype... contig # 1/1 1.12 SNPs:0 indels:0 indel len sum: 0 vrate:0 Finished haplotype creation in 0.000380993s Simulating reads for haplotype #0... ERROR: haplotype (== 366) < read length!
What does this error mean? I could not find any documentation and description of mason error messages anywhere. Have you used mason
