I am looking for ways to create alternate references for metagenomes. I would like to introduce SNPs every other x base pairs in the new reference using the original reference. Ideally if there is a package that does this, I appreciate to know about it, otherwise what is your recommendation to do it?

If you have the reference then from BBMap suite can introduce mutations that you control. It will also make a corresponding VCF. If you would like to simulate the meragenome itself first then from BBMap can do that with metagenome=t flag.

Thanks! Yes, I have the reference and the idea is to make an alternate version of that reference with introducing mutations. If you have experience with I wonder if Substitution rate, 0 to 1 means 0.1 will replace 10 percent of bases?
