[…] gements, many of which are found in both MinION and PacBio. This reveals several recurring patterns of rearrangement.Very recently, two methods appeared for finding structural variants in long reads: NanoSV () and NGMLR/Sniffles (Sedlazeck et al. Our study is largely complementary to those. Whereas they characterize variants automatically, we draw pictures of them a […]
