Truncation and constitutive activation of the androgen receptor by diverse genomic rearrangements in prostate cancer

PMCID: 5141345
PMID: 27897170
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13668

[…] upstream of the ar gene locus, as well as splice junctions occurring within the ar upstream region (). splicing between ar exon 3 and upstream exons in tumour c-12a was also detected using the comrad algorithm designed for identifying fusion transcripts expressed from underlying genomic rearrangements ()., to understand these unusual ar splicing events in more detail, we inspected rna-seq […]


Comparative assessment of methods for the fusion transcripts detection from RNA Seq data

PMCID: 4748267
PMID: 26862001
DOI: 10.1038/srep21597

[…] (product of third generation sequencing technologies) mixed with short reads, which does not fit the purpose of this study. mcpherson et al. developed three fusion detection software packages i.e. comrad, defuse and nfuse. comrad is the oldest software in this group, and is no longer maintained. nfuse software contains both defuse and nfuse scripts for fusion detection. the nfuse script […]
