[…] will include the gene expression data in an integrated analysis to further reduce false positives., joint genotype analysis, adopted by somaticsniper, fasd-somatic, samtools, jointsnvmix2, virmid, snvsniffer, seurat, and cavemanĀ , , , , , , , , assumes diploidy in both tumor and normal and evaluates the likelihood of the joint genotypes. variant calling becomes a natural corollary […]

[…] gene panels. in these experiments, we observed an increased senstivity compared to the exome data, particularly for increasing levels of contamination of normal tissue (). interestingly, mutect2 and snvsniffer were much less sensitive on paired panel data than on exome data. moreover, precision was above 90% for almost all callers and admixture levels (). ebcall reached high sensitivity […]
