Abstract


This study is a comparison of variant calling methods in exome sequenced of matched tumor-normal sample pairs. Preliminary results prove that the determination of somatic mutations in tumors requires that the specific algorithms are able to analyze, in a combined way, the information provided by tumor DNA and constitutional DNA, and thus enabling better precise distinction between germinal and somatic variants.


Keywords
