Prediction of neoepitopes from murine sequencing data
We recently published the tool MuPeXI, the mutant peptide extractor and informer, enabling neoepitope prediction from tumor sequencing data . MuPeXI is originally designed for variant calls obtained from sequencing data of human origin but increasing interest to determine neoepitopes in murine models have encouraged us to update and test MuPeXI for mouse compatibility. The murine-compatible MuPeXI is now available as a command line tool (https://github.com/ambj/MuPeXI) together with a mouse-specific web server (http://www.cbs.dtu.dk/services/MuPeXI-mouse/).
Despite the interest for determining neoepitopes from preclinical mouse models, only few tools for neoepitope prediction have been designed and evaluated to allow neoepitope prediction from data of murine origin. To fulfill this need, we optimized MuPeXI to enable identification of murine neopeptides. MuPeXI is now compatible with the genetic reference of mus musculus, as well as the two commonly used mouse strains,...
