The association of insertions/deletions (INDELs) and variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs) with obesity and its related traits and complications

PMCID: 5471687
PMID: 28615046
DOI: 10.1186/s40101-017-0142-x

[…] sity and related traits. With the advent of faster and cheaper next-generation genome and exome sequencing, paired with the rise of the software availability for genome-wide detection of INDELs (like indelMINER []) and VNTRs (like VNTRseek []), it is hoped that association and functional characterization studies between INDELs/VNTRs and obesity should be continued and not neglected.

A Survey of Computational Tools to Analyze and Interpret Whole Exome Sequencing Data

Int J Genomics
PMCID: 5192301
PMID: 28070503
DOI: 10.1155/2016/7983236

[…] NER is a compilation of tools that takes the strengths of split-read and de novo assembly to determine INDELs from paired-end reads of WGS data []. Comparisons were done between SAMtools, Pindel, and indelMINER on a simulated dataset with 7,500 INDELs []. SAMtools found the least INDELs with 6,491, followed by Pindel with 7,239 and indelMINER with 7,365 INDELs identified. However, indelMINER's fal […]
