IDP-fusion pipeline

This fusion-transcriptome is identified by the SpliceMap-LSC-IDP-fusion pipeline.

SpliceMap takes short reads from the Second Generation Sequencing platforms, such as Illumina, to detect exon junctions.

LSC makes use of the high-quality short reads to correct the long reads from PacBio platform. The output is the error-corrected long reads.

IDP-fusion uses the junction detections and the alignment of error-corrected long reads to detect the relatively short isoforms and fusion isforms at full-length and predict the very long isoforms and fusion isoforms by statistical modeling.
