BreakPoint Surveyor: A Pipeline for Structural Variant Visualization

Bioinformatics. 2017 Jun 5. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx362



BreakPoint Surveyor (BPS) is a computational pipeline for the discovery, characterization, and visualization of complex genomic rearrangements, such as viral genome integration, in paired-end sequence data. BPS facilitates interpretation of structural variants by merging structural variant breakpoint predictions, gene exon structure, read depth, and RNA-Seq expression into a single comprehensive figure.
