Keith Robison's interest in next-gen sequencing is "shifting from hobby to work-central" and so in a recent blog post he discusses a new Nature Methods paper describing a program that helps identify indels.

"The program also explicitly models heterozygosity, allowing it to find heterozygous indels," Robison adds.
