  Description     : simulator for PacBio sequencing reads

PacBio DNA sequencers produce two types of characteristic reads: CCS
(short and low error rate) and CLR (long and high error rate), both of
which could be useful for de novo assembly of genomes. PBSIM simulates
those PacBio reads from a reference sequence by using either a model-based
or sampling-based simulation. Simulated reads are useful, for example, when
developing or evaluating sequence assemblers targeted at PacBio data.

This package will be maintained by the Debian Med Packaging Team.
