InSilicoSeq (or iss) is a sequencing simulator producing (relatively) realistic Illumina reads primarily intended for simulating metagenomic samples, although it can be used to produce sequencing data from a single genome.

InSilicoSeq is written in python, and use a kernel density estimation model to model the read quality of real sequencing data.

InSilicoSeq support substitution, insertion and deletion errors. If you don’t have the use for insertion and deletion error a basic error model is provided.
