Halotype-based variant caller for sequencing data including next-generation sequencing (NGS).
This app combines powerful cloud computing with the Platypus tool for variant detection/discovery. It analyzes a BAM file and generates a VCF file that contains a list of identified variants including genotype calls and likelihoods.
Use this app to detect the following types of variants in BAM files from whole genome sequencing (WGS) and exome sequencing:
- multinucleotide variants (also known as MNPs)
- deletions and insertions (DIPs) that are less than one read length
