Description

Variant detection in massively parallel sequencing. For one sample, calls SNPs, indels, and consensus genotypes. For tumor-normal pairs, further classifies each variant as Germline, Somatic, or LOH, and also detects somatic copy number changes.

Features

  • Calls SNPs and Indels from SAMtools pileup files
  • Filters variants by coverage, read depth, variant frequency, and base quality
  • Determines somatic status (Somatic, Germline, LOH) for Tumor-Normal pairs
  • Compares, merges, and intersects two lists of variants
  • Limits variant calls to a set of target positions or target regions
  • Free for non-commercial use.

    We use VarScan at the Genome Center at Washington University to call variants in Roche/454 and Illumina/Solexa data.
