Conventional methods to quantify sequencing error have intrinsic features that limit their applicability to shotgun metagenomic data. The increasing diversity and proliferation of high-throughput technologies have made the need for universal error-estimation methods particularly acute. We introduce DRISEE, a platform-independent method to assess sequencing error in shotgun metagenomic data, and utilize it to discover previously uncharacterized error in de novo sequence data from two widely used technologies.
