I was reading a paper and it seems that they compare whole genome pool-sequencing with other technique saying that the the cost of reduced representation sequencing technique by reducing the amount of DNA to be sequenced.
In contrast to the whole-genome approach of Pool-seq, the cost savings of these alternative approaches are achieved by reducing the representation of the genome in the sequence data

But in the end, whole genome pool-sequencing _is_ a reduced representation sequencing technique because you don't actually read the whole genome. You just don't remove some fragments based on size. Is that correct? Or am I understanding the terminology badly?
