Rates of different misassignment errors on the Illumina platform. a Unique index and read sequences that were well separated in sequence space (colored rectangles) were used to form 14 distinct samples and multiplexed in the same Illumina sequencing run. Misread bases (yellow stars) make up the most common error type, but are still attributable to their correct triplet. b Misassigned reads appear as unexpected triplets, and can be categorized as either index misassignments (0.16 % total) or sequence misassignments (0.09 %)
