Discovery and characterization of Alu repeat sequences via precise local read assembly

PMCID: 4666360
PMID: 26503250
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv1089

[…] the na18506 sample resulted in 1375 putative alu insertions having a quality score of 6 or higher. a total of 820 alu insertions were fully assembled, of which 774 intersect with calls reported by alu-detect (out of 1727 total calls) (), again implying a fdr around 5%., in validation, our specific goals were to demonstrate (i) the presence of the alu at that chromosomal location, (ii) […]
