[…] is uniform component in an attempt to capture the noise in the data leaving the putatively cleaner data for their Gaussian mixture model. Their software is available on GitHub in the repository named nQuire.The method presented has been designed to work with VCF data () that contains the number of times each allele was sequenced for each variant. In theory, any method that produces a valid VCF fil […]
