PMID: 27035118
DOI: 10.3892/mmr.2016.5014

[…] single nucleotide variants (snvs) were detected using varscan () and somatic indels were detected using gatk. structure variants (svs) and somatic cnvs were identified using breakdancer ()/crest/seeksv (self-method) and a self-method based on the segseq () algorithm, respectively. virus integration sites were identified using a self-method based on unmapped reads. the procedure also included […]

[…] which is capable of reaching sensitivity and specificity beyond 99% for mutant allelic frequencies >0.03 () with q30 reads. cnvs were detected using contra, and gene arrangement is detected by seeksv. without a matched normal, interpretation focused on known somatic hotspot mutations, including snvs, indels, as well as known cnvs and gene arrangements in lung cancer. the mutations […]

DOI: 10.1038/onc.2015.72

[…] clusters with less than five supporting read pairs or falling to ucsc simple repeat regions were discarded. to identify the exact sv breakpoints at single nucleotide level, an in-house program seeksv was used. similar to crest, seeksv used next-generation short reads with partial alignments with the reference genome to call svs and included four steps as follows: (i) obtain soft-clipped […]
