Split-Read Indel and Structural Variant Calling Using PINDEL
Genetic variations are important evolutionary forces in all forms of life in nature. Accurate and efficient detection of various forms of genetic variants is crucial for understanding cell function, evolution and diseases in living organisms. In this chapter, we describe a detailed protocol that uses Pindel, a split-read algorithm, to discover indels and structural variants in a given genome, from Illumina short-read sequencing data produced from biological samples.
