ECHO: A reference-free short-read error correction algorithm,
Genome Research, 21:1181--1192, 2011.
ECHO is an error correction algorithm designed for short-reads from next-generation sequencing platforms such as Illumina's Genome Analyzer II. The algorithm uses a Bayesian framework to improve the quality of the reads in a given data set by employing maximum a posteriori estimation.
