Has anyone worked with constructing barcodes for TRIP? How does constructing of barcodes work in general? I don't seem to be able to grasp the basics of constructing these barcodes.
From the paper and user manual it seems that barcodes are random sequences of pre-defined length of 16-20bp ± 1bp. On data analysis step they are combined and all barcodes 2 Hamming distance apart (it means that two words have difference in one letter from each other) will be discarded from the list of genuine barcodes.
