IMSindel: An accurate intermediate size indel detection tool incorporating de novo assembly and gapped global local alignment with split read analysis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5884821
PMID: 29618752
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23978-z

[…] e performance of our method with three existing methods: GATK HaplotypeCaller, which detects intermediate-size indels using a realignment based approach, PINDEL, which uses a split-read approach, and ScanIndel, which implements a hybrid approach, using whole exome sequencing (WES) data from three HapMap-JPT samples. Furthermore, we apply our method to actual disease samples with WES, and report on […]
