Helps medical researchers to determine the somatic status of each variant, to identify and filters and detects germline variants for parallel sequencing





VarScan is a free and open source, platform-independent, technology-independent software tool for identifying SNPs and deals in massively parallel sequencing of individual and pooled samples.

Given data for a single sample, VarScan identifies and filters germline variants based on read counts, base quality, and allele frequencyh.

Given data for a tumor-normal pair, VarScan also determines the somatic status of each variant (Germline, Somatic, or LOH) by comparing read counts between samples.

Variant detection in massively parallel sequencing. For one sample, calls SNPs, indels, and consensus genotypes. For tumor-normal pairs, further classifies each variant as Germline, Somatic, or LOH, and also detects somatic copy number changes.
