Indelocator in pipelines

PMCID: 5529435
PMID: 28747664
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06811-x

[…] all amplification products have the same start and stop positions making it impossible to distinguish different dna fragments from pcr duplicate reads. snvs were identified using mutect, indels with indelocator and annovar to annotate the identified variants. we applied the same additional filters we used for wes analysis to the identified snvs and indels., we checked for a higher frequency […]

[…] with variant af between 0.05 and 0.95. allele frequencies for these snps for each sample were graphed according to nucleotide position using excel., all sequence variants identified by mutect and indelocator were reviewed. those identified in intronic and intergenic regions, and in ncrna; or with a total number of variant reads < 3 or reads present only in one direction; or those seen […]

[…] removed (picard). gatk6 was used to refine the alignments near insertion/deletion (indel) sites. single nucleotide variants (snvs) were called using mutect7, and indels were called using indelocator ( annotation was performed using oncotator. because tumor tissues were sequenced without a paired normal from the corresponding […]

[…] pipeline. briefly, reads were aligned using bwa, followed by indel realignment and quality score recalibration using the genome analysis toolkit. somatic mutations were detected using mutect and indelocator, then annotated using oncotator (http: // mutsig v.1.5 was used to detect significantly mutated genes. copy-number calls were derived from relative […]

[…] (bam files) of the 547 tcga exomes were downloaded from the genome data commons (gdc). somatic point mutations were called using mutect and filtered using d-toxog, and indels were called using indelocator (all available at all calls were filtered using a panel of normals. indels in microsatellite loci were called using msmutect., to identify […]

[…] hybrid capture with a focused targeted bait set of 243 genes selected based upon their alteration in prior studies of gastroesophageal cancer. somatic events were identified with mutect v1.1.4 and indelocator ( additionally, sequencing was performed on a germline dna sample from nod-scid mice and putative somatic alterations detected […]

[…] using an illumina hiseq 2000 with the v3 sequencing kits and the illumina 1.3.4 pipeline (illumina, ca). for variant calling, we used mutect ver 1.1.4 in high confidence mode (hc) for snv and indelocator for small insertions and deletions. variants were annotated with oncotator. non-coding variants, with the exception of splice-site mutations were excluded. snvs and indels […]

[…] bam files for matched tumor and normal samples were further processed and analyzed in the cancer genome analysis pipeline firehose. components include contest, mutect, indelocator, and dranger,–. significance of mutations was calculated using the mutsig algorithm,, and implemented as described previously. the outline of the entire pipeline can be accessed […]

[…] matched normal samples ()., on the exome sequencing data, somatic variant calling was performed using nine publicly available somatic variant callers: eb call [], mutect [], seurat [], shimmer [], indelocator (, somatic sniper [], strelka [], varscan 2 [] and virmid []. the union of putative somatic mutations, except positions in intronic, […]
