Article Title: Effect of the enzyme and PCR conditions on the quality of high-throughput DNA sequencing results
Figure Lengend Snippet: Proportion of correct reads for the three genetic systems (simple: a single allele per individual, squares ; medium: two alleles, circles ; and complex: multiple alleles, triangles ) using standard PCR conditions ( open ) and modified PCR conditions to reduce chimera formation ( gray ). The size of the shape is indicative of the number of reads (see legend). All enzymes yielded at least 50% correct reads in the simplest system, mitochondrial DNA (Test 1; open squares). Some enzymes only worked for a given set of conditions (cycling conditions/genetic system). A group of enzymes consisting of Phusion, Gold and FastStart yielded a high proportion of correct reads cosistently accross all conditions. Others, such as Roche Taq, HotStar and Biotaq, yielded a low percent of correct reads for the more complex systems (MHC class I and MHC class II). Abbreviations as defined in Table 1 .
