FilterFFPE: FFPE Artificial Chimeric Read Filter for NGS data

This package finds and filters artificial chimeric reads specifically generated in next-generation sequencing (NGS) process of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues. These artificial chimeric reads can lead to a large number of false positive structural variation (SV) calls. The required input is an indexed BAM file of a FFPE sample.
