PMID: 29440180
DOI: 10.1101/mcs.a002444

[…] the heterogeneity of each tumor specimen and compared it to the others in the series. here, copy-number-neutral variants and their attendant vafs were clustered in five dimensions using the sciclone algorithm v1.1 () (parameters: minimumdepth = 300, maximumclusters=15), followed by phylogeny reconstruction with clonevol ()., somatic mutations and rna-seq data from tumors were input […]

PMID: 27502118
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms12498

[…] by applying unsupervised hierarchical clustering on a matrix of sample-by-sample correlations derived from gene expression (fpkm) values ()., the clonal architecture of each tumour was inferred with sciclone (version 1.0.7; ref. ), using default parameters except for copynumbermargins set to 0.25. the median vaf of each subclone was used as input for clonevol (, […]
