SplazerS 1.1 – Detect Genomic Indel Variants with exact Breakpoints in Single- and Paired-end Sequencing

SplazerS 1.1


SplazerS (Split Read Mapping as a branch of RazerS) is a tool for mapping reads containing structural variants, implemented in the highly efficient SeqAn C++ software library. SplazerS employs “split” read mapping, where prefix and suffix match of a read may be interrupted by a longer gap. This split read mapping is useful in the context of mRNA sequencing, where introns cause so-called junction reads that span exon-exon boundaries, or for the detection of small to medium-sized insertions and deletions in genomic data.
