Rxivist combines preprints from bioRxiv with data from Twitter to help you find the papers being discussed in your field. Currently indexing 70,458 bioRxiv papers from 307,648 authors.
Transcripts are frequently modified by structural variations, which leads to a fused transcript of either multiple genes (known as a fusion gene) or a gene and a previously non-transcribing sequence. Detecting these modifications (called transcriptomic structural variations, or TSVs), especially in cancer tumor sequencing, is an important and challenging computational problem. We introduce SQUID, a novel algorithm to accurately predict both fusion-gene and non-fusion-gene TSVs from RNA-seq alignments. SQUID unifies both concordant and discordant read alignments into one model, and doubles the accuracy on simulation data compared to other approaches. With SQUID, we identified novel non-fusion-gene TSVs on TCGA samples.
