DOI: 10.1038/ng.3368

[…] finally, using the list of likely high-quality sites, genotypes were estimated using the haplotype-aware calling algorithms implemented in beagle, to generate initial haplotype estimates, and triocaller, to refine this initial haplotype set. the entire computational process required approximately 20 years of computing time (6 cpu years for quality control and alignment, and 14 cpu years […]

[…] to refine these genotype calls using pedigree-aware methods such as polymutt []. we therefore broke the pedigree into units (trios and parent-offspring duos) that could be analyzed with the programs triocaller [] and beagle 4.0 []. we broke full sibships into distinct trios by replicating parental information. similarly, for male monkeys who have had offspring with multiple different female […]

[…] to genome coverage, genotype calling and statistical power of the output data for gwas was discussed by abecasis from the computation point-of-view through the use of the abcd (kang et al. ) and triocaller (chen et al. ) software., the plenary lectures by eric perakslis and michael eisen debated different aspects of freedom to access information for scientific research. in the food and drug […]
