About the Software
Authors: Danny Challis, Jin Yu, Uday Evani, and Fuli Yu
Atlas2 is a next-generation sequencing suite of variant analysis tools specializing in the separation of true SNPs and insertions and deletions (indels) from sequencing and mapping errors in Whole Exome Capture Sequencing (WECS) data.
SNPs may be called using the Atlas-SNP2 application and indels may be called using the Atlas-Indel2 application. The suite implements logistic regression models trained on validated WECS data to identify the true variants. There is a separate regression model for each sequencing platform. The suite currently supports the SOLiD, Illumina, and Roche 454 (SNPs only) platforms. Future versions of Atlas2 will include additional models for new sequencing platforms.
The Atlas2 suite takes a Binary sequence Alignment/Mapping (BAM) file (see
http://samtools.sourceforge.net/SAM1.pdf) and a FASTA reference genome as input and produces variant calls in Variant Call Format (VCF) (see http://www.1000genomes.org/wiki/Analysis/vcf4.0).
In addition to variant calls, the application collects coverage information and uses simple heuristic cutoffs to estimate the likely genotype of each variant site.
Unix-like operation systems
Ruby 1.9.1: http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/
If you do not have a 64-bit Linux system, a C++ compiler and Make must be installed
SOLiD-SNP-caller is coded in C++ and must be compiled to run. For 64-bit Linux system this has already been done. If you have a different system take the following steps before running SOLiD-SNP-caller for the first time:
Navigate to the SOLiD-SNP-caller directory in a terminal
Run: make clean
Compiling may take several minutes
