A Census of Tandemly Repeated Polymorphic Loci in Genic Regions Through the Comparative Integration of Human Genome Assemblies

Front Genet
PMCID: 5941971
PMID: 29770143
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00155

[…] ism of TR loci in raw reads from sequencing assays are among the most useful supporting tools/resources. Examples of such data mining tools are: RepeatSeq (Highnam et al., ) lobSTR (Gymrek et al., ), ReviSTER (Tae et al., ), VNTRseek (Gelfand et al., ), myFLq (Van Neste et al., ). pSTR Finder (Lee et al., ), STR-FM (Fungtammasan et al., ), ExpansionHunter (Dolzhenko et al., ), HipSTR (Willems et a […]


Exome Wide Somatic Microsatellite Variation Is Altered in Cells with DNA Repair Deficiencies

[…] below 85% sequence purity. Duplicated loci were identified based on sequence purity and sequence length and were removed.MSTs were analyzed using a custom MST minor-allele caller based on GenoTan and ReviSTER software , , which were developed by this group to improve MST haplotype predictions ( The minor-allele caller extracts marked MSTs from ba […]
