[…] on an illumina genome analyzer iix (gaiix) according to the manufacturer's specifications. the resulting reads were re-aligned to the human genome reference assembly build 36.1 (hg18) using splinter. pcmv6-xl5 amplicon (1908 base pairs) was included in the reaction as a negative control. as positive controls, 10 different constructs (p53 gene) with synthetically engineered mutations […]

[…] products. six dna samples heterozygous for previously known mutants in mapt gene were also included. single reads (36 bp) were aligned to the human genome reference assembly build 36.1 (hg18) using splinter []. splinter uses the positive control to estimate sensitivity and specificity for variant calling. the wild type: mutant ratio in the positive control is similar to the relative frequency […]

DOI: 10.1136/bmjresp-2014-000057

[…] illumina genome analyzer/miseq platform. negative and positive controls were inserted into the pooled sample to optimise detection of rare variants with high specificity and sensitivity. , we used splinter (short in/del prediction by large deviation inference and non-linear true frequency estimation by recursion) to identify rare single nucleotide variants and small insertions/deletions. […]

PMID: 23990795
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1003685

[…] the protein coding regions of the app, apoe, psen1, psen2, mapt and grn were obtained (table s2 in ). after adjusting for the sensitivity and specificity parameters of the base-calling algorithm (splinter) using negative and positive controls, a total of 396 and 369 variants were called and perfectly annotated in the targeted genomic regions of pool 1 and 2, respectively. 73% […]
