The result is depicted in Figure6(B). This study provides new insights into the microbial-mediated carbon and nitrogen cycling in paddy soils. As part of this work we prepared software for the flexible generation of DNA codes based on our new approach. Thus, our 8-base codewords (n=16) use 11 bits for sample identifiers (k=11), and 5 bits of redundancy (n-k=5).

Hamming codes can be efficiently constructed and decoded using standard linear algebra techniques: for further details, see ref. 8.To apply Hamming codes to biological problems, we have encoded sample identifiers as Two popular sets of error-correcting codes are Hamming codes and Levenshtein codes.

As in the case of linear codes, Levenshtein-based codes guarantee a specific minimum distance d L min between any codewords [17]. To date, this technique has been used successfully to sequence up to thirteen samples in the same lane in a single pyrosequencing run5.Existing barcoding methods are limited both in the number The major advantage of those codes over “naive” tags is the possibility to detect and correct a limited number of errors.

NNNNNNNN designates the unique eight-base barcode used to tag each PCR product, with ‘CA’ inserted as a linker between the barcode and rRNA primer. The new barcode “CGGC” is now closer to the wrong barcode “CGTC” on the left as opposed to the original barcode “CAGG” on the right. Secondly the distance between any two codewords has to be calculated at least once, making 4 2 n 2 - 4 n calculations necessary. After removal of low-quality sequences and trimming of primer sequences,437,544 sequences remained, each representing between ~240–280 bases of 16S rRNAsequence.

ConclusionWe propose a solution to the problem of the word size definition in the continuous context of DNA and a definition of a modified Levenshtein distance which we name “Sequence-Levenshtein distance”. To adapt codes to specific experimental conditions, the user can customize sequence filtering, the number of correctable mutations and barcode length for highest performance. PLoS Comput.

Hamming codes use only a subset of the possiblecodewords, choosing those that lie at the center of multidimensional spheres (hyperspheres)in a binary subspace. Secondly, not every error occurs with the same probability: some substitutions are more likely than others, e.g. DNA bar coding and pyrosequencing to identify rare HIV drug resistance mutations.
