Uses paired-end transcriptome sequencing data to recognize fusion transcripts. SnowsShoes-FTD integrates several subroutines to build template regions for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primer design. It offers a way to simplify quick PCR validations. This tool is also able to construct template regions for acid sequences of the putative in-frame fusion gene products, to ease predictions concerning the functional significance of the fusion events.
