Exome sequencing of pleuropulmonary blastoma reveals frequent biallelic loss of TP53 and two hits in DICER1 resulting in retention of 5p derived miRNA hairpin loop sequences

PMCID: 4224628
PMID: 24909177
DOI: 10.1038/onc.2014.150

[…] black) and 3p (red) elements were depicted separately from miRNAs without these annotations (blue).To count the number of reads corresponding to each annotated miRNA component, we used the R package ‘rbamtools' version 2.0 to extract the mapping position of each read in the bam file that fell within an miRNA. To remove adapter sequence and to account for uncertainty in the annotation of the exact […]
