Software Description
Software Description: 

BreakDancer-1.4.5, released under GPLv3, is a Cpp package that provides genome-wide detection of structural variants from next generation paired-end sequencing reads. It includes two complementary programs. BreakDancerMax predicts five types of structural variants: insertions, deletions, inversions, inter- and intra-chromosomal translocations from next-generation short paired-end sequencing reads using read pairs that are mapped with unexpected separation distances or orientation. BreakDancerMini focuses on detecting small indels (usually between 10bp and 100bp) using normally mapped read pairs. Please read our paper for detailed algorithmic description. http://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/v6/n9/abs/nmeth.1363.html
