RWCFusion: identifying phenotype specific cancer driver gene fusions based on fusion pair random walk scoring method

PMCID: 5308635
PMID: 27506935
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.11064

[…] f CML [, ]. Nowadays, several fundamental databases can provide fusion events involved in cancer. To our best knowledge, the following databases TICdb [], dbCrid [], ChimerDB 2.0 [], Mitelman [], and ChiTaRS [] contain fusion events of human cancers.The advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies help to detect gene fusions. Several tools based on next-generation sequencing such as T […]


Transcriptome analysis revealed chimeric RNAs, single nucleotide polymorphisms and allele specific expression in porcine prenatal skeletal muscle

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4926253
PMID: 27352850
DOI: 10.1038/srep29039

[…] verlapping genes, adjacent genes who share common exons. For conservation analysis of the pig identified chimeric RNAs, we downloaded sets of human, mouse, and fruit fly chimeric transcripts from the ChiTaRS 2.1 database and aligned the pig chimeric RNAs to those from other species using the BLAST program (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool, version 2.2.2 6+) with default parameters (at least 20 nt […]


Evolutionary Insights into RNA trans Splicing in Vertebrates

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4824033
PMID: 26966239
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evw025

[…] that can detect trans-spliced, circular, or fusion transcripts (). In addition, several chimeric RNA databases have been constructed and they reported appealing results (; ; ; , ; ). For example, the ChiTaRS database includes comprehensive information on more than 16,000 chimeric transcripts from humans, mice, and fruit flies (). It is expected that the use of an optimized algorithm and filtering […]
