CellCoal: NGS simulation of single-cell somatic evolution

Check my new simulator CellCoal for the coalescent simulation of single-cell sequencing genotypes. CellCoal simulates the history of single-cell samples obtained from somatic cell populations with different demographic histories and produces single-nucleotide variants under a variety of mutation models, sequencing read counts, … Continue reading

A next-generation version of modeltest

The Stamatakis lab as taken over the Modeltest series! check Modeltest-NG. ModelTest-NG is much faster than jModelTest and ProtTest but equally accurate and introduces new features, such as ascertainment bias correction, mixture, and free-rate models, or the automatic processing of … Continue reading

NGS coverage and evolutionary inferences from single-cells

New paper just out @GenomeMedicine! We report the impact of sequencing depth (and sampling effort) towards variant detection, genotype accuracy, clonal inference and phylogenetic reconstruction from single-cell cancer data. https://rdcu.be/LJ4E
