PASS-BIS: A novel aligner for methylome studies

Article-icon-01We recently published and released PASS-BIS, a modified version of the PASS aligner to enable fast and efficient bisulfite-treated reads mapping, both in color-space and in base-space.

The article is online, and the PASS-BIS package is freely available for download.

QueryOR logo

QueryOR is a web-based query platform that aggregates several functional annotation of variants and genes for giving valuable prioritization criteria to reduce the search space of analysis.

The prioritization strategy consist in a ranking system that sorts results based on the satisfied criteria, in contrast with other developed tools that applies filters to reduce the results.

The platform is available for analysis of VCF files produced by exome sequencing.
