[…] information (in sam and vcf standard) to distinguish reads carrying different alleles, which is necessary for subsequent haplotype assembly. however, existing sv callers (e.g., breakdancer, modil, or variationhunter) cannot supply the information required to distinguish reads for sv or non-sv haplotypes, and the accuracies of reported svs and boundaries are unsatisfactory [, ].

DOI: 10.3389/fbioe.2015.00092

[…] maximum standard deviation value is fixed and events spanning the same locus, resulting in a small value of the insert size standard deviation, may be missed., distribution-based approaches, e.g., modil (lee et al., ), exploit the local distribution of all the mappings spanning a particular location on the genome. a read cluster is generated when the local distribution is shifted in respect […]
