TIDDIT, an efficient and comprehensive structural variant caller for massive parallel sequencing data [version 2; referees: 2 approved]

Jesper Eisfeldt, Anna Lindstrand, Daniel Nilsson, Pall Olason, Francesco Vezzi
Reliable detection of large structural variation ( > 1000 bp) is important in both rare and common genetic disorders. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is a technology that may be used to identify a large proportion of the genomic structural variants (SVs) in an individual in a single experiment. Even though SV callers have been extensively used in research to detect mutations, the potential usage of SV callers within routine clinical diagnostics is still limited. One well known, but not well-addressed problem is the large number of benign variants and reference errors present in the human genome that further complicates analysis. Even though there is a wide range of SV-callers available, the number of callers that allow detection of the entire spectra of SV at a low computational cost is still relatively limited.
