BreakDancer v1.1.2

BreakDancer provides genome-wide detection of structural variants from next generation paired-end sequencing reads. It predicts five types of structural variants: insertions, deletions, inversions, inter- and intra-chromosomal translocations from next-generation short paired-end sequencing reads using read pairs that are mapped with unexpected separation distances or orientation.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/breakdancer/v1.1.2

An example command to include in your job script:

breakdancer-max <config-file>

Where <config-file> is the name of your configuration file.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
