    I could not say if it is because of PCR duplicates or the other reasons i mentioned, but my feeling is that coverage variation is substantial (see also the link to a dedicated thread in my previous post). I have no precise measurement of this variation though. Maybe a large scale estimation of this variability could be an interesting experiment -if not already performed? Note that Helicos data could be used as a negative control regarding the potential contribution of the PCR step.

      What UNIX command do you use to compare multiple lines in the same file? The only way I would know to do iit is to sort, cut the sequence from the SAM file, uniq, then join that list with the SAM. There is an easier way than this, right?

        Code:
        drio@ned:~/tmp **$ cat test.txt 
        a:1
        z:2
        t:1
        r:4
        x:1
        drio@ned:~/tmp **$ cat test.txt  | gsort -t: -k2,2 -u
        a:1
        z:2
        r:4
        -drd

          Yep...that is much simpler. Now, I am filtering my SAM file to contain correctly matched pairs while removing duplicates by:
          Code:
          awk '($7=="=")' accepted_hits.sam |sort -k10,10 -u > reads.filtered
