DeDup

A merged read deduplication tool capable to perform merged read deduplication on single end data.

Build Status codecov install with bioconda

Method

The DeDup tool is designed to work with forward, reverse and merged reads (forward and reverse combined to make a single read). DeDup expects the different kinds of reads to have read names that begin with one of the following prefixes:

  • F_
  • R_
  • M_

To remove PCR duplicates we only retain a single read for a given genomic position and read direction. For M_ (merged) reads we know both the start and end of the sequenced fragment. For F_ and R_ reads we only know the start or end of the sequenced fragment becuase the read length is variable.

A little documentation is available at http://dedup.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
