The Sequence Alignment/Map format and SAMtools
Summary: The Sequence Alignment/Map (SAM) format is a generic alignment format for storing read alignments against reference sequences, supporting short and long reads produced by different sequencing platforms. Expand

The variant call format and VCFtools
We propose the variant call format (VCF) as a standardized format for storing the most prevalent types of sequence variation, including SNPs, indels and larger structural variants, together with rich annotations. Expand

Merlin—rapid analysis of dense genetic maps using sparse gene flow trees
Efforts to find disease genes using high-density single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) maps will produce data sets that exceed the limitations of current computational tools. Here we describe a new,Expand

An integrated map of genetic variation from 1,092 human genomes
By characterizing the geographic and functional spectrum of human genetic variation, the 1000 Genomes Project aims to build a resource to help to understand the genetic contribution to disease. HereExpand

MaCH: using sequence and genotype data to estimate haplotypes and unobserved genotypes
Genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) can identify common alleles that contribute to complex disease susceptibility. Despite the large number of SNPs assessed in each study, the effects of mostExpand

Genetic studies of body mass index yield new insights for obesity biology
Obesity is heritable and predisposes to many diseases. To understand the genetic basis of obesity better, here we conduct a genome-wide association study and Metabochip meta-analysis of body massExpand
