JointSLM in pipeline

PMCID: 5267451
PMID: 28122487
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-017-0286-5

[…] to small and medium-sized sv because of the limit set on insert size while snp chip data only capture large sv. one potential better comparison would be to use an rd method such as cnvnator [] and jointslm [] that target large sv events and then to compare them with sv from snp chip data., another consideration is that sv detection from wgs data relies on differences with a reference genome, […]

[…] samples as input and identify the (merged) segments which appear more frequently across the population than expected by chance. only a few rcna methods have been developed for ngs data, including jointslm [] and cn.mops []. they conduct copy number analyses based on read counts of segments of multiple tumor samples and usually are applied for cnv detection. on the other hand, many rcna […]

[…] length., a considerable number of methods for the detection of cnv in whole-genome sequencing (wgs) data have been reported in the literature, including cnvnator, cnanorm, cnaseg, rsw-seq, cn.mops, jointslm, readdepth, and bic-seq (ivakhno et al., ; kim et al., ; abyzov et al., ; magi et al., ; miller et al., ; xi et al., ; gusnanto et al., ; klambauer et al., ). recently, pscc (li et al., ) […]

[…] methods on cnv detections from ngs data are designed for examining cnvs on the whole genome or whole exome scale, with specific mathematical models applied in the algorithms []. for example, jointslm and exocnvtest are designed to detect common cnvs shared among many samples. conifer and xhmm are made to detect rare cnvs using population data. in our approach, we used the average […]

[…] signature based methods with the single signature based methods can be found in . it was already shown that modeling across samples can improve the performance considerably , , and therefore jointslm and cn.mops were not compared in this paper for fairness. since they are developed for the purpose of population studies, multiple samples (recommended at least 10 and 6 samples […]
