Reference data

Capture region BED files

Collects commonly used capture region BED files. These are installed and available for use in bcbio analyses. Includes files for hg19 (chr1, chr2, chr3... style naming) and GRCh37 (1, 2, 3... style naming).

Canonical transcripts

Files under transcripts/cancer_transcripts_*_ensembl.txt contain IDs of canonical (longest) transcripts that are used by SnpEff variant prediction tool when it run with the -canon flag (only in Ensembl-based versions of reference databases GRCh37.** and GRCh38.** in SnpEff notation). Since not all IDs in the list represent the most cancer-relevant isoforms, transcripts/canon_cancer_replacement.txt provides a map of transcripts for replacement with the -canonList option:

java -jar snpEff.jar GRCh37.75 test.vcf -canon -canonList transcripts/canon_cancer_replacement.txt

To use the canonical transcripts for variant annotation in bcbio, add the following into your configuration YAML file:

  effects_transcripts: canon

To use the cancer transcripts, use the following:

  effects_transcripts: canonical_cancer
