Hi all,

I am looking for a test data set for some software I'm developing, which would be small and simple, but still biologically meaningful. What I need is raw Illumina-style NGS data - basically Fastq format files (paired end). I thought that a phage genome might be a good choice due to it's small size and simplicity, but I couldn't find such data online. Maybe NGS is a bit of an overkill for phage genomes... Any other ideas?
Just to make things clear, I'm not looking for assembled genomes, but rather for the raw data. Any database, publicly-available data set or publication that you know of?
Thanks!

Hi,

the Bowtie2 aligner comes with a phage example (including data): see here .

Although it's simulated data, it should serve your purposes first. If you need more simulated reads, try the FluxSimulator.

Cheers,

Michael

also put in your consideration that you can use reference to create artificial reads that suits your needs
