Precise characterization of somatic structural variations and mobile element insertions from paired long-read sequencing data with nanomonsv

We introduce our novel software, nanomonsv, for detecting somatic structural variations (SVs) using tumor and matched control long-read sequencing data with a single-base resolution. Using paired long-read sequencing data from three cancer cell-lines and their matched lymphoblastoid lines, we demonstrate that our approach can identify not only somatic SVs that can be captured with short-read…
