By just looking at Roach et al's paper I get the impression that they are the same thing, and the Wikipedia URL for the former is a redirect to the latter.

However, I suspect they are not exactly the same - for starters, they wouldn't have two different words for the same thing, right?

Can anybody shed some light and suggest some references?

Thanks.


Paired-end is the name of the sequencing approach.

Mates refer to the read pairs that correspond to the same insert, but sequenced from opposite directions.
