[…] eage structures were generated using COLT (software can be downloaded here: and validated manually. We implemented a lineage visualization tool, COLT-Viz (He et al., submitted). In short, COLT considers constraints (e.g., isotype and timepoint) along with mutational patterns to build lineage trees. The height of each node is proportional to th […]
