Massively parallel sequencing allows efficient determination of genomic sequences and intra-host polymorphisms for viruses. However, the sequencing depth that guarantees safe interpretation of the observed data is unclear. We demonstrated that 10-fold genome coverage may allow safe genome assembly, and 1000-fold coverage is required to obtain reliable polymorphism estimation.
