Exome wide somatic mutation characterization of small bowel adenocarcinoma

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5871010
PMID: 29522538
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007200

[…] This 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 para […]


Detection of subclonal L1 transductions in colorectal cancer by long distance inverse PCR and Nanopore sequencing

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5673974
PMID: 29109480
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15076-3

[…] 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 with […]


Whole exome sequencing identifies novel candidate predisposition genes for familial polycythemia vera

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 5397753
PMID: 28427458
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-017-0102-x

[…] and 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 which […]
