Whole Genome Sequencing Reveals Complex Evolution Patterns of Multidrug Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis Beijing Strains in Patients

PLoS One
PMCID: 3855793
PMID: 24324807
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0082551

[…] All polymorphisms differentiating serial isolates and genes associated with acquired drug resistances were further validated by Sanger sequencing using an ABI3130xl Sequencer. In addition, we applied VarDetect (vers. 200601251500) [] to analyze peak height ratios of heterogeneous SNPs in order to estimate the frequency of different dominating subpopulations in all serial patient derived isolates ( […]


A Simple Strain Typing Assay for Trypanosoma cruzi: Discrimination of Major Evolutionary Lineages from a Single Amplification Product

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 3409129
PMID: 22860154
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0001777

[…] cVI.As proposed, the assay requires an accurate call of heterozygous peaks for hybrid strains, something that is easily done with free software packages, such as PolyPhred (free for academic use) or VarDetect . However, if necessary to avoid the calling of heterozygous (double) peaks, this procedure can be substituted by a more laborious strategy of cloning and sequencing a number of amplificatio […]


Atypical epigenetic mark in an atypical location: cytosine methylation at asymmetric (CNN) sites within the body of a non repetitive tomato gene

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 3117769
PMID: 21599976
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-11-94

[…] cts were purified using gel electrophoresis and a QIAquick Gel Extraction Kit (Qiagen) and sequenced without previous subcloning using the same primers used for PCR. Chromatograms were analysed using VarDetect [] to estimate the ratio of cytosine to thymine signal. Statistical analysis was performed using the Mann-Whitney test at the 95% significance level. […]


Emerging strengths in Asia Pacific bioinformatics

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2638166
PMID: 19091008
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-S12-S1

[…] Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are key elements in genomics research, importantly for correlating genetic variations with disease outcomes. VarDetect (Ngamphiw et al. []) is a new generation tool for the accurate detection of SNPs, while the functional implications of these variations can be assessed using FANS (Liu et al. []). […]
