Detection, Characterization and Visualization of Kataegis in Sequencing Data

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

Kataegis refers to the occurrence of regional hypermutation and is a phenomenon observed in a wide range of malignancies. Using changepoint detection katdetectr aims to identify putative kataegis foci from common data-formats housing genomic variants. Katdetectr has shown to be a robust package for the detection, characterization and visualization of kataegis.
