Partis is an HMM-based framework for B- and T-cell receptor sequence annotation, simulation, clonal family, and germline inference. It is built on top of the ham HMM compiler and ig-sw set of Smith-Waterman annotation tools.
It is described in the following papers:
- HMM framework and BCR annotation Ralph, DK, & Matsen IV, FA (2016). Consistency of [...] Enables Accurate B Cell Receptor Sequence Annotation. PLOS Computational Biology, 12(1), e1004409.
- Clonal family inference Ralph, DK, & Matsen IV, FA (2016). Likelihood-based Inference of B-cell Clonal Families. PLOS Computational Biology, 12(10), e1005086.
- Germline inference Ralph, DK, & Matsen IV, FA (in review at PLOS Computational Biology) Per-sample immunoglobulin germline inference [...]
Partis is free software under the GPL v3.
