Targeted Sequencing of Lung Function Loci in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Cases and Controls

PMCID: 5256917
PMID: 28114305
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0170222

[…] quality than the rest, the average coverage per individual was 30x., in order to distinguish true calls from sequencing error, three different calling algorithms specific for pooled data were used (vipr [], snver [] and syzygy []). vipr was less sensitive than the other two algorithms and it called a much smaller number of variants, 39,211 snps and 459 deletions, compared to 62,506 snps […]


Deep Assessment of Genomic Diversity in Cassava for Herbicide Tolerance and Starch Biosynthesis

PMCID: 5295625
PMID: 28179981
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2017.01.002

[…] aligner (bwa) with 7 variant discovery programs: freebayes , the genome analysis toolkit (gatk) , the next generation sequencing experience platform (ngsep) , samtools , snver , varscan and vipr . from these tools, snver and vipr were particularly designed to identify variation in pools. because freebayes and gatk presented problems or were not compatible with bowtie2 alignments, […]


Targeted Exon Sequencing Successfully Discovers Rare Causative Genes and Clarifies the Molecular Epidemiology of Japanese Deafness Patients

PMCID: 3742761
PMID: 23967202
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0071381

[…] in the early-onset group vs. late-detected group was 54∶22 for gjb2, 7∶1 for pcdh15, 8∶3 for slc26a4, 18∶2 for tecta, and 3∶5 for tmprss3., comparison data between the current algorithm and vipr, which is widely used for pooled sample analysis due to its higher specificity in mutation detection compared to other programs for pooled samples, is shown in . vipr is unable to detect […]


Functional Coding Variants in SLC6A15, a Possible Risk Gene for Major Depression

PMCID: 3712998
PMID: 23874702
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0068645

[…] first run and grch37/hg19 for the second run) allowing a maximum of four mismatches. single nucleotide variant (snv) calling and annotation steps were performed as described in quast et al. using vipr and annovar . prerequisite for the inclusion into the variant calling procedure was that the coverage at a given base position in each pool had to be at least 5,000. thus in the first run 81.4% […]
