Description

This is the main function of the package that calls mutations by comparing at each genomic position the SNV or INDEL frequencies computed in one tested sample to the SNV or INDEL Position-Error Rates computed from several control samples by a binomial test. An outlier detection is performed among all intra-sample p-values to call a mutation. For users wishing to develop their own analysis for other sequencing panel, it requires recalibrated BAM files control samples to be processed to compute the Position-Error Rates stored in a file specified in ber.ctrl.file.

DetectPlasmaMutation(patient.dir = "./", patient.name = NULL,
  pos_ranges.file = NULL, ber.ctrl.file = NULL, bai.ext = ".bai",
  n.trim = 8, cov.min = 0, force = FALSE, show.more = FALSE,

Arguments

patient.dir,

char, foldername containing the rBAM folder of the patients. The typical folder hierarchy will consist of 'Plasma/rBAM'

patient.name,

char, filename of the patient .bam file(s) (default NULL read all patients in folder patient.dir)

pos_ranges.file,

char, name of the Rdata file containing the three variables pos_ind, pos_snp, pos_ranges as build by the function PrepareLibrary. Default NULL, use the position_ranges.rda provides that we used for our analysis.

ber.ctrl.file,

char, pathname of the file providing the background error rates obtained from the controls (default NULL use the provided background error rates obtained from our 29 controls). See background_error_rate.txt data and BuildCtrlErrorRate function.

bai.ext,

char, filename extension of the bai files (default '.bai')

n.trim,

integer, number of base positions trimmed at the ends of each amplicon (default 8)

cov.min,

integer, minimal coverture required at each position (default 0)

force,

boolean, (default FALSE) if TRUE force all computations to all files including already processed ones

show.more,

boolean, (default FALSE show only detected positions) if TRUE additional annotations on result plots are given for non-significant mutations

qcutoff.snv,

numeric, proportion of kept base positions ranged by increasing 95th percentile SNV PER in control samples (default 0.95)

qcutoff.indel,

numeric, proportion of kept base positions ranged by increasing 95th percentile INDEL PER in control samples (default 0.99)

cutoff.sb.ref,

numeric, exclude reference positions without cutoff < strand bias < 1-cutoff (default 0.1) (see Supplementary Materials in References)

cutoff.sb.hotspot,

numeric, exclude hotspot positions with Symmetric Odds Ratio test > cutoff (default 3.1) (see Supplementary Materials in References)

cutoff.sb.nonhotspot,

numeric, exclude non-hotspot positions with Symmetric Odds Ratio test > cutoff (default 2.5) (see Supplementary Materials in References)

hotspot.indel,

char, a vector containing the known positions of hotspot deletion/insertion defined as chrX:start:end (default 'chr7:55227950:55249171')

output.dir,

char, name of the folder to save results (default patient.dir).

Value

the number of processed patients
