The individual ends from paired-end sets are referred to with a suffix indicating the end, for example BGI/1, BGI/2. †These sets contain a whole lane; other sets have either been decimated (Ibis Test & HiSeq) or contain only a few tiles (ϕX174 L2, ϕX174 L4 and ϕX174 L6). 'Date sequenced' is approximate, representing our best effort to quantify the vintage of the data. All intensity data are freely available from the AYB website [15] in the Illumina CIF format.
