PMID: 28427458
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-017-0102-x

[…] short-indel variants were then called using gatk haplotypecaller., the snv and indel variants in the exome sequencing data were analyzed with an in-house developed analysis and visualization tool (baseplayer, katainen et al., manuscript in preparation). a minimum coverage of four reads and the mutated allele present in at least 20% of the reads was required to call a variant. the variants […]

[…] as grch37 coordinates 22:29065455–29066124. to examine whether the novel candidate insertions were detected by wgs or not, we performed a thorough visual inspection of the paired-end read data using baseplayer., in order to compare ldi-pcr nanopore sequencing results to wgs data we performed local assembly of the wgs data. we selected those chimeric reads and discordant read pairs that aligned […]

[…] step was done to exclude low allelic fraction artefacts in regions prone to sequencing errors. only variants within the targeted region of nimblegen seqcap ez exome library v3 kit were analyzed., baseplayer [] was utilized to visualize and analyze the data (allele frequency and quality filtering, allelic imbalance, gene annotation, and calculation of variant statistics). variant filtering […]
