Probabilistic approaches to alignment and SNP-calling in repetitive regions of the drosophilla melanogaster genome

Description

Abstract:
Accurate prediction of RNA editing sites requires being able to differentiate genuine edit events from single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) events and sequencing machine error events. In repetitive regions and regions with complex polymorphisms, this becomes very difficult due to ambiguities regarding the correct alignment. Our work explores probabilistic techniques for overcoming these challenges.
