Genomic features of renal cell carcinoma with venous tumor thrombus

PMCID: 5945671
PMID: 29748622
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25544-z

[…] as of february 2016), dbsnp (build 147), 1000 genomes and evs (exome variant server, nhlbi go exome sequencing project (esp), seattle, wa [version esp6500si-v2]) data. indels were identified with platypus callvariants (version 0.8.1, parameter settings genindels = 1, gensnps = 1, buffersize = 100000 and maxreads = 10000000). all indels were annotated using annovar (version as of november […]


The Origins and Vulnerabilities of Two Transmissible Cancers in Tasmanian Devils

PMCID: 5896245
PMID: 29634948

[…] 'complete'), defining each genotype value as follows:(i)homozygous 1/1: 0(ii)heterozygous 1/2: 0.5(iii)homozygous 2/2: 1, homozygous 1/1: 0, heterozygous 1/2: 0.5, homozygous 2/2: 1, we used platypus version 0.8.1 for detecting and genotyping single nucleotide variants (snvs) and small insertions and deletions (indels) (). variants were ascertained from the high-coverage genomes […]


Insights into Platypus Population Structure and History from Whole Genome Sequencing

PMCID: 5913675
PMID: 29688544
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msy041

[…] c. martin, elizabeth m. batty, and julie hussin contributed equally to this work., the platypus is an egg-laying mammal which, alongside the echidna, occupies a unique place in the mammalian phylogenetic tree. despite widespread interest in its unusual biology, little is known […]


The impact of reconstructed soils following oil sands exploitation on aspen and its associated belowground microbiome

PMCID: 5807544
PMID: 29426844
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20783-6

[…] the populus trichocarpa reference genome v.3.0 using bwa v0.7.13, together with samtools v0.1.19 to produce an alignment file for each individual tree. haplotype variants were then called with platypus v0.8.1 and filtered using the r package stackr v0.5.3. eleven more individuals that yielded doubtful results were removed from the data set, leaving 309 individuals for genetic data […]


Methylation profiling identifies two subclasses of squamous cell carcinoma related to distinct cells of origin

PMCID: 5805678
PMID: 29422656
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03025-1

[…] marked with sambamba version 0.6.5. single-nucleotide variations (snvs) and insertions/deletions (indels) were called using an in-house workflow, based on samtools/bcftools 0.1.19 (for snvs) and platypus 0.8.1 (for indels),. the annotation was performed with annovar (version 2016feb01). to remove artifact snvs/indels we calculated a ‘confidence score’ for each mutation. this score was first […]


Evaluating the breast cancer predisposition role of rare variants in genes associated with low penetrance breast cancer risk SNPs

PMCID: 5761188
PMID: 29316957
DOI: 10.1186/s13058-017-0929-z

[…] score recalibration and indel realignment performed using the genome analysis toolkit (gatk v3.2.2) []. gatk unifiedgenotyper v2.4 (broad institute, cambridge, ma, usa) [], haplotypecaller [] and platypus [] were used for variant calling. annotation of variants was performed using a local copy of the ensembl [] version r73 database and a customised version of ensembl variant effect predictor.
