svtyper website  

SVTyper performs breakpoint genotyping of structural variants (SVs) using whole genome sequencing data. Users must supply a VCF file of sites to genotype (which may be generated by LUMPY) as well as a BAM/CRAM file of Illumina paired-end reads aligned with BWA-MEM. SVTyper assesses discordant and concordant reads from paired-end and split-read alignments to infer genotypes at each site. Algorithm details and benchmarking are described in Chiang et al., 2015.
