Reconstructing metastatic seeding patterns of human cancers

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5290319
PMID: 28139641
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms14114

[…] therefore works extremely well among metastases but is not applicable for liquid cancers. On the contrary, tools like PhyloWGS work extremely well in liquid cancers. Last, we compared our results to AncesTree, which roughly identified the evolutionarily related samples in Pam03 but excluded 70% (63/90) of the variants (among them the driver gene mutations in KRAS and ATM) in the inferred phylogen […]


Spatial and temporal homogeneity of driver mutations in diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4823825
PMID: 27048880
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms11185

[…] f a gene on chromosome X Ref′=Ref × 2+Alt, Alt′=Alt; in case of Copy Neutral LOH Ref′=Ref+Alt/2 and Alt′=Alt/2. The reconstructed trees were redrawn in Graphviz by using in-house scripts adapted from AncesTree to show the trajectories of mutations with contribution ⩾0.05. […]


AceTree: a tool for visual analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans embryogenesis

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1501046
PMID: 16740163
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-7-275

[…] The technical underpinnings of the application are embodied in five classes: Nucleus; NucleiMgr; Identity; Cell; AncesTree.The Nucleus class contains the elements used to describe each nucleus at each time point. The member variables are all public and are directly accessed wherever needed in the AceTree code. T […]
