[…] \begin{document}$o\left (2^{(k-1)n}\right)$\end{document}o2(k−1)n. therefore it is very challenging to find the optimal haplotypes., various polyploid haplotype phasing methods have been developed. hapcompass [] relied on a graphical approach to develop a scheme which resolves conflicts arising from incorrect haplotype phasing. haptree [] investigated the polyploid setup using a branch-and-bound […]

[…] using overlapping sequence reads (figure )., a number of different polyploid haplotyping tools (for sequence reads) have been developed in recent years, including polyhap (), satlotyper (), hapcompass (), haptree (), sdhap (), shesisplus (), and tripoly (motazedi et al., unpublished). three of these tools (hapcompass, haptree, and sdhap) were recently compared and evaluated over a range […]

[…] and hence are haplotype-specific by nature []. extending beyond similar approaches for diploids [, ], recent methods allow for haplotype assembly from ngs reads in polyploids [–]. for example, hapcompass, the tool we use in this study, phases haplotypes during assembly by using co-occurrence within ngs reads of alleles at different sites along a chromosome. to generate haplotypic data […]

[…] genotypes were called by unified genotyper. the heterozygosity rate for each accession was estimated based on the heterozygous loci by dividing number of heterozygous sites/length of aligned region. hapcompass v0.7.7 was used for haplotype assembly with ploidy level assigned by -p (). the custom scripts were deposited in github., the snps identified above were selected for validation by sanger […]

[…] using the shared haplotype information within the sample, given the genotypes of individuals from a population. recently, two algorithms have been proposed for haplotype assembly: haptree and hapcompass. however, not much progress has been made recently in developing the haplotype phasing algorithms for polyploids. most of these algorithms are proposed several years ago. for example, […]
