Decoding of Superimposed Traces Produced by Direct Sequencing of Heterozygous Indels

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 2429969
PMID: 18654614
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000113

[…] porated into several software packages, including PolyPhred , STADEN package , CodonCode Aligner (CodonCode Corp., Dedham, MA, USA), Mutation Surveyor (SoftGenetics), novoSNP , InSNP , PolyScan , and AutoCSA . This approach has been used to detect and characterize sequence variants in clinical applications, such as detecting somatic heterozygous variants in primary cancers , and to discover rare i […]


AutoCSA, an algorithm for high throughput DNA sequence variant detection in cancer genomes

PMCID: 5947781
PMID: 17485433
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btm152

[…] as been enhanced to detect SNPs in PCR-amplified diploid samples ().We have extended some of the concepts of CSA variant detection protocol developed by into a fully functional computer application, AutoCSA. CSA was initially developed to simplify and aid the detection of variants in DNA sequence traces. Briefly, CSA involves comparing raw trace profiles from each of the four channels (bases) bet […]
