How It Works

FusionAnalyser uses paired reads mapping to different genes (Bridge reads),  generated through high-throughput whole transcriptome sequencing, to build a first dataset of candidate fusion events. Subsequently, a second dataset, built upon those reads where only one of the two sequences in a pair is successfully mapped to the reference genome (‘Half-mapped Anchor reads’), is generated. The mapped reads in the latter dataset are used as an anchor to tie each Half-mapped event to the corresponding Bridge region.
