Like with in any automated sequencing runs, towards the ends there is
lots of garbage, I have noticed that there usually some insertions and
deletions in their sequences. But you can pick these up by watching out
for frameshifts. ...mind you, considering that it's just bulk
sequencing, it's not so bad. I haven't quantified any of this...just
telling you what I have noticed...and by all means, if your sequence and
theirs differ a little, trust your own...it's your baby...theirs is one
of a zillion babies...no time to fuss over one in a million...
