[…] several tools have been proposed to identify fusion from transcriptomic data such as jaffa, star-fusion, tophat-fusion, fusioncatcher, and soapfuse. in addition to these short-read-based techniques, idp-fusion, and iso-seq methods can analyse long-read rna-seq data to identify fused genes., here we assessed these approaches in detecting the 71 validated gene fusions in the mcf-7 breast cancer […]

[…] using pacbio or ont alone, hybrid-seq can reduce the requirement of data size and improve the output, especially for transcriptome-wide studies. for example, a series of hybrid-seq methods (idp, idp-fusion, idp-ase) have been developed to improve the transcriptome studies to isoform levels (e.g., gene isoform reconstruction, fusion genes and allele phasing) with higher sensitivity […]

[…] () and crest (), can call gene fusions in addition to other structural rearrangements. in the last 2 years, several additional fusion mapping tools have been released—fusionmetacaller (), jaffa (), idp-fusion (), trup (), fusioncatcher and prada (). a number of supporting tools, such as the bioconductor package chimera (), offer utilities for organizing, analyzing and validating gene fusion […]

[…] then tried using the uk server (, and found that running fusionfinder from the uk server took an incomprehensible amount of time when compared to the other software packages. idp-fusion is a hybrid fusion detection software tool, designed to run for long reads (product of third generation sequencing technologies) mixed with short reads, which does not fit the purpose […]

[…] the development of models of differentiation and cell commitment within the developing embryo and a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the maintenance of pluripotency. idp-fusion has also been recently released for the identification of fusion genes, fusion sites, and fusion gene isoforms from cancer transcriptomes . in the human mcf7 breast cancer cell line, […]
