Comparative assessment of methods for the fusion transcripts detection from RNA Seq data

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4748267
PMID: 26862001
DOI: 10.1038/srep21597

[…] s. It requires pre-built Bowtie references, transcriptome files (both GTF and FASTA format), EST files (FASTA format), genome files (FASTA format), and Gmap references. Here, we used deFuse script of nFuse version 0.2.1. […]


High Frequency of Fusion Transcripts Involving TCF7L2 in Colorectal Cancer: Novel Fusion Partner and Splice Variants

PLoS One
PMCID: 3946716
PMID: 24608966
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0091264

[…] and 16 tissues from the Illumina Human Body Map v2. For the cell lines with paired whole-genome sequence (HCT116, HCT15, HT29 and SW480), RNA fusion transcripts and DNA breakpoints were identified by nFuse version 0.2.0 . A fusion nomination required three spanning read pairs and two split reads from the RNA-seq data. […]
