Each of the terms means something different:

  • adapter - a known sequence appended to the DNA fragment used either to extend the fragment or tag it in a certain way
  • sequencing errors - errors introduced by the sequencing instrument
  • PCR artifacts - artificial sequences that are caused by the PCR amplification process
  • duplicates - identical sequences that may or may not be cause by error (PCR amplification included)

So you need to pick the software that does what you need.

Thank you. What kind of software would you recommend for each term?

you a have a good list to start with - remember there is no single best tool - the right answer depends on many factors, most importantly what are you able to run in the first place
