[…] calling was performed. we have described the methodology employed for the detection and clinical analysis of snvs and indels previously. cnv detection was performed using standard parameters for exomedepth v.1.1.6. exomedepth was presented with sets of aligned and non-duplicate sequencing reads in a binary sequence alignment/map (bam) file format that were matched by gender […]

[…] appropriate probe kits and protocols from mrc holland, as previously described ., we performed a review of the available methods and elected to build a tool through modification and optimisation of exomedepth v.1.0.0 . this tool was chosen because of its performance and because it was open source and easy to modify. we have called the tool decon for detection of exon copy number., to create […]

[…] through use of read depth information and maximum penalized likelihood estimation (mple) (chen et al., ). cnvs can also be identified from targeted ngs data using a popular software package called exomedepth. the sensitivity and specificity of exomedepth v1.1.16 were determined to be 100% and 99.8%, respectively, validating this technique as an appropriate method for detection of cnvs […]

[…] files and annotated using a variant effect predictor, including those with minor allele frequencies (maf), in public databases and the beijing genomics institute (bgi) in-house databases. we used exomedepth software to detect the cnvs of this pedigree. by setting the parameters and following the instructions, we obtained rare cnvs from exome sequencing data. under the assumption […]

[…] and deletions was conducted using the pindel and manta algorithms, and both results were finally crosschecked. read-depth-based detection of structural rearrangements was conducted using the exomedepth software. chromosomal copy number variations (cnvs) detected by exomedepth were further crosschecked using our custom pipeline; this retrieved base-level depth-of-coverage for each bam […]
