temp2 website  

TEMP2 is an algorithm for detecting transposon insertions using short-read whole-genome sequencing data. It can not only precisely detect germline transposon insertions, but also estimate the number of uninherited/somatic transposon insertions by removing artificial insertion introduced by chimeric reads.
