[…] (hg19, uscc) with the burrows-wheeler aligner []. the aligned bam files were sorted and merged with samtools 0.1.19 []. first, we applied two software, the genome analysis toolkit (gatk 1.6) [] and multisnv [], to identify mutations in multi-region wes. the indels and snvs were identified with gatk 1.6 [] based on dbsnp 135 (, and the duplicates were removed […]

[…] (gatk2.1-8). for mutation calling, we first used the gatk unified genotyper in multi-sample mode to call single nucleotide variations (snvs) and indels. then we applied another joint-calling method multisnv for snv calling and variants qualified in both methods were reserved. indels called by the gatk unified genotyper were manually checked to ensure the fidelity. all variants were annotated […]

[…] of base qualities. samtools mpileup command was used to create pileup files for variant calling. snv and indel detection was performed with gatk, varscan (version 2.3.8), mutect (version 1.1.7) and multisnv. mutations were annotated for read depth of reference and alternate alleles, and ensembl variant effect predictor (version 80) and cosmic (version 72) were used to explore the impact […]

[…] exome capture libraries were sequenced on an ilumina hiseq. sequencing reads were aligned using bwa and further processed according to the gatk best practices pipeline. mutations were called using multisnv and phylogenetic tree reconstruction was carried out using the maximum parsimony mode of the mega software. due to allelic amplification biases introduced by the repli-g wga step, […]
