[…] regions indicate blocks that do not match the reference., in each experiment we merged two inputs, namely (1) chromosomes 4 and 15 of the yeast genome and (2) a flawed version of (1) produced by rsvsim containing one structural variation, i.e., either a deletion, an inversion (reversal), or a translocation. rsvsim does not allow de novo insertions. for asymmetric tools, the flawed assemblies […]

[…] where transposons were simulated in the reference genome but not simulated in the bam file. one hundred tes were inserted into regions of the reference genome without pre-existing transposons using rsvsim (), and the performance of temp was evaluated after eight rounds of simulations. te-locate was also run on this set of simulations to evaluate its ability to correctly identify the maintenance […]

[…] from the umd3.1 bovine genome reference assembly. rearranged chromosomes with 300 randomly inserted sv (100 sv each for deletions, inversions and duplications) were generated with the r package rsvsim []. simulation of short reads was achieved by using wgsim []., we considered several factors that may influence the performance of sv detection: homozygous or heterozygous sv; the sequence […]

[…] the sensitivity and specificity of tepid, 100 te insertions (50 copy-paste transpositions, 50 cut-paste transpositions) and 100 te absence variants were simulated in the arabidopsis genome using the rsvsim r package, version 1.7.2 (), and synthetic reads generated from the modified genome at various levels of sequencing coverage using wgsim () ( these reads […]

[…] lasv with several other methods, we generated simulated datasets each with 100 deletions, inversions and tandem duplications randomly inserted across human chromosome 9 using the sv simulation tool rsvsim (). paired-end illumina sequencing reads at 30× coverage with the mean and variance of the fragment size 400 and 50 bp respectively were then simulated using the pirs software (). the process […]
