One Size Doesn't Fit All RefEditor: Building Personalized Diploid Reference Genome to Improve Read Mapping and Genotype Calling in Next Generation Sequencing Studies

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4534450
PMID: 26267278
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1004448

[…] d reference genome strategy very attractive.There are tools available for constructing personal genomes that integrate known variants into the reference genome such as vcf2diploid in AlleleSeq [] and perEditor []. Compared to these existing tools, there are several unique characteristics and contributions of RefEditor. First the purpose of RefEditor is to enable precision variant calling and disco […]
