    Analysis of gene copy number changes in tumor phylogenetics

    Evolution of cancer cells is characterized by large scale and rapid changes in the chromosomal  landscape. The fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique provides a way to measure the copy numbers of ...

    Models and algorithms for genome rearrangement with positional constraints

    Traditionally, the merit of a rearrangement scenario between two gene orders has been measured based on a parsimony criteria alone; two scenarios with the same number of rearrangements are considered equally g...

    Jabba: hybrid error correction for long sequencing reads

    Third generation sequencing platforms produce longer reads with higher error rates than second generation technologies. While the improved read length can provide useful information for downstream analysis, un...
