Circular Consensus Reads (CCS)
Pacbio offers two kinds of reads: Standard Long reads and CCS (Circular Consensus Sequencing) reads. CCS reads have a low error rate and a length sufficient to solve many long repeats in genomes. In many projects can be useful to join the possibilities that supply the long standard Pacbio reads with the accuracy of CCS reads.
