[…] radia will include the gene expression data in an integrated analysis to further reduce false positives., joint genotype analysis, adopted by somaticsniper, fasd-somatic, samtools, jointsnvmix2, virmid, snvsniffer, seurat, and caveman , , , , , , , , assumes diploidy in both tumor and normal and evaluates the likelihood of the joint genotypes. variant calling becomes a natural corollary […]

[…] available somatic variant callers: eb call [], mutect [], seurat [], shimmer [], indelocator (, somatic sniper [], strelka [], varscan 2 [] and virmid []. the union of putative somatic mutations, except positions in intronic, intergenic, downstream and non-coding rna intronic areas, reported by the nine somatic variant callers was used […]

[…] using pre-processing aligned reads separately in tumor and normal samples; strelka [], which reports the most likely genotype for tumor and normal samples based on a bayesian probability model); and virmid []., wes: wes raw data was processed as previously described []. variant calling and annotation were performed with samtools ( 0.1.18) and varscanv211 […]

DOI: 10.1038/srep43813

[…] using nine publicly available somatic variant callers: eb call, mutect. seurat, shimmer, indelocator (, somatic sniper. strelka, varscan 2 and virmid. all putative somatic mutations reported by at least one somatic variant caller, except positions in intronic, intergenic, downstream and non-coding rna intronic areas, were used to select […]

PMID: 27002637
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0151664

[…] from five breast cancer patients to evaluate the performance of nine publicly available somatic variant callers: ebcall, mutect, seurat, shimmer, indelocator, somatic sniper, strelka, varscan 2 and virmid for the detection of single nucleotide mutations and small deletions and insertions. we report a large variation in the number of calls from the nine somatic variant callers […]
