Sherman can simulate ungapped high-throughput datasets for bisulfite sequencing (BS-Seq) or standard experiments. It allows the user to introduce various 'contaminants' into the sequences, such as basecall errors, SNPs, adapter fragments etc., in order to evaluate the influence of common problems observed in many Next-Gen Sequencing experiments.
