Shimmer

Shimmer is a program designed to identify somatic changes when run on two BAM files,
one from normal tissue and the other from a tumor sample. It uses Fisher’s exact test
along with multiple testing correction (Benjamini-Hochberg) to find significant
differences between allele composition with a specified false discovery rate.

Shimmer was written by Nancy Fisher Hansen, a staff scientist in the Genome Technology
Branch (GTB) of NHGRI, an institute at the National Institutes of Health. Nancy can be
reached at nhansen@mail.nih.gov.
