[…] reads to the human reference genome grch37/hg19 using burrows-wheeler aligner (bwa)-mem with default parameters [28]. reads not aligning uniquely as well as pcr duplicates were not analysed further. svdetect was then used to identify potential translocations, inversions and large deletions/insertions from discordant paired-end data [29] aligning on different chromosomes, with unexpected strand […]

[…] read counts were calculated for carriers and controls and for each bin the ratio of meancarriers/meancontrols was calculated and logarithmized with base 2. structural variants were inferred by using svdetect [28] and for short indels, the data were filtered for partially mapping reads (soft clips) and the mapping positions were analyzed for frequency and compared between the groups., real-time […]

[…] aligning to different chromosomes, with unexpected strand orientation or increase/decrease in insert size, were extracted for further analysis. these “discordant” paired-reads were analysed by svdetect [10] to predict structural variants (sv). the mps results were visualized on the integrative genomics viewer [11]. to identify sample-specific structural variants, the predicted svs […]
