[…] proportions. finally, we simulated ten tumors using a range of 0% to 90% admixture with control sequence. summarizes the variants present in the parental genomes., for each tumor data set, we used wessim [] to generate 100 bp illumina reads with a mean insert size of 300 bp (standard deviation 100) for exome and 200 bp (s.d. 50) for panel data, and median coverage of 70x and 520x for exon […]

[…] found in the real ccrcc and its matched normal sample were put in the phylogenetic tree., finally, reads are generated from the normal genome and the clones using the software library seqan [] and wessim []. the tumor sample was generated by mixing the reads from the clones and varying proportions of reads from the normal sample. the weighting of the clones was determined by drawing […]
