LRSIM: Simulator for Linked Reads
This package simulates whole genome sequencing using 10X Genomics Linked Read technology. We have attempted to realistically capture all of the relevant steps of the 10X protocol so that it can be used to faithfully evaluate linked read sequencing of different genomes, mutation rates, input libraries, and short read sequencing conditions in silico. We have tested the package with LongRanger, SuperNova, HapCUT2, fragScaff and ARCSto confirm that variant identifation, phasing, de novo assembly and scaffolding are supported. We also encourage users to use these simulations to aid in the development of novel algorithms. Please feel free to contact us if your pipelines require additional features.
git clone --recursive https://github.com/aquaskyline/LRSIM.git cd 10xReadsSimulator sh make.sh cd test sh test.sh
Tips to run
- Please review the 10X Genomics website for an overivew of the sequencing process and the definitions of the related terms. Note that 'Molecule' and 'Partition' are synonymous to 'Fragment' and 'Pool'.
- The simulated reads were tested to be compaitible with "longRanger wgs" and "supernova".
- The default parameters are similar to 10X Chromium's standard protocal for human genome.
- Set -z to run DWGSIM in parallel. For the human genome, each copy of DWGSIM takes 4GB memory. Set -z to the number of available cores if you have enough memory.
- For the human genome, the memory consumption peaks at 48GB, and takes about 5 hours to finish with default parameters.
- With the same output prefix
-p, you can continue from step 4: Simulate reads using option
-u 4with different
-t(partitions to generate) and
-m(average number of molecules per partition). This shortern the simulation from 5 hours to 1.5 hours for human.
- Please use this pipeline for non-human genomes at your own risk. You may want to use
-oto skip valid range check on parameters. You shouldn't set
-mto over 4700, which is the number of available barcodes, or the program will not run to the end. Note that the default barcoding parameters do not perform well for small genomes (<100Mbp).
- I hate asking users to install dependencies, so they are included in the repo (make sure to use git clone --recursive). If you still run into problem, please write to me.
- To simulate reads using known variants, please provide LRSIM with variant inserted haploid FASTA files using
-g, separated by comma. I suggest using vcf2diploid to generate haploid FASTAs from VCF.
- User can provide ia real fragment size distribution using
-c. A sample file is at

The ratio of homozygous to heterzygous simulated variant is hardcoded as 1:2.
The simulator uses a modified version of DWGSIM originally developed by Nils Homer (nh13/DWGSIM) and SURVIVOR by Fritz Sadlezeck (fritzsedlazeck/SURVIVOR).
