Correction search. The search for the proper set of corrections that change an observed read with errors into the actual sequence from the genome can be viewed as exploring a tree. Nodes in the tree represent possible corrected reads (and implicitly sets of corrections to the observed read). Branches in the tree represent corrections. Each node can be assigned a likelihood by our model for sequencing errors as described in the text. Quake's algorithm visits the nodes in order of decreasing likelihood until a valid read is found or the threshold is passed.
