Publication for alu-detect

alu-detect in pipeline

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

[…] as ‘aluysimple’, ‘alussimple’, ‘alustr’ or ‘alumosaic’. overlapping calls were counted from intersection of any call located within 100 bp. the 1727 alu insertion calls for na18506 were based on alu-detect analysis () of erx009608 as obtained from the sequence read archive. consistent with that study, calls were relative to the hg18 genome assembly, and any call located within 100 bp […]

[…] 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) […]
