[…] described [] and hybridized to humanht-12 v4 expression beadchips. for sample details see ., with the rna-sequencing data previously described [], we called single nucleotide variants with the rvboost pipeline []. in short, rvboost calls variants using the unifiedgenotyper tool from the gatk suite and annotates variants with a qscore value. six different sequence features contribute […]
