MOTIVATION RNA-Seq technology is promising to uncover many novel alternative splicing events, gene fusions and other variations in RNA transcripts. For an accurate detection and quantification of transcripts, it is important to resolve the mapping ambiguity for those RNA-Seq reads that can be mapped to multiple loci: >17% of the reads from mouse RNA-Seq(More)
Motivation Despite recent advances in algorithms design to characterize structural variation using high-throughput short read sequencing (HTS) data, characterization of novel sequence insertions longer than the average read length remains a challenging task. This is mainly due to both computational difficulties and the complexities imposed by genomic(More)
PURPOSE Gene fusions are frequently found in prostate cancer and may result in the formation of unique chimeric amino acid sequences (CASQs) that span the breakpoint of two fused gene products. This study evaluated the potential for fusion-derived CASQs to be a source of tumor neoepitopes, and determined their relationship to patterns of immune signatures(More)
A major challenge for next generation sequencing technology is genome assembly. A physical map could be used as a preliminary step towards genome sequencing in a hybrid approach. In this paper, we illustrate a robust physical mapping algorithm, GAPM, which could well complement with the assembly of short fragments. The physical mapping problem (PMP) is to(More)
Neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC) is becoming more prevalent as more potent androgen receptor (AR) pathway inhibitors are applied to patients with metastatic tumors. However, there are limited cell and xenograft models currently available, hindering the investigation of signal pathways involved in regulating NEPC progression and the design of high(More)
