Lightbulb Live webinar Tue Aug 25: MetaSV - An accurate & integrative structura variant caller


Join us for an educational webinar on Tuesday August 25, 10am PT // 1pm ET where we will introduce MetaSV, an algorithm that merges results from multiple SV detection methods with improved sensitivity. Specifically, we will discuss:

- the motivation for an ensemble approach to SV calling
- the methodology behind MetaSV, including steps for inter/intra-tool merging, local assembly, breakpoint resolution, genotyping and annotation
- the incorporation of a soft-clip based method to further enhance its overall sensitivity
- the use of a simulated framework and experimental data to validate its effectiveness

Please register by clicking on the "Register" link. A confirmation email will be sent to you. If you cannot attend, register anyway to receive a link to the recording to watch on demand.
