A pair of researchers from the University of Luxembourg introduces an in silico reference model-based method for finding large-scale structural variants in cancer genomes. The approach uses breakpoint patterns to appropriately place stray or mismatched reads in the context of many small reference sequences generated in silico from patient samples and/or cell lines, offering a look at structural variants in the process, authors of the study note.
