A review of somatic single nucleotide variant calling algorithms for next generation sequencing data

Comput Struct Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5852328
PMID: 29552334
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2018.01.003

[…] 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 […]


Comprehensive benchmarking of SNV callers for highly admixed tumor data

PLoS One
PMCID: 5636151
PMID: 29020110
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0186175

[…] 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 […]
