[…] e not been previously implicated as essential oncogenes in the literature and could be novel targets on treating complex diseases and cancers.In the next paper, Tang et al. [] developed a new method, STRScan, that quantifies short tandem repeats (STRs) from whole-genome sequencing data. STRscan identifies k-mers from short NGS reads that are similar to input STR patterns. The authors then used a g […]
