Abstract

The detection and quantification of low-abundance somatic DNA mutations by high-throughput sequencing is challenging because of the difficulty of distinguishing errors from true mutations. There are several approaches available for analyzing somatic point mutations and small insertions or deletions, but an accurate genome-wide assessment of somatic structural variants (somSVs) in bulk DNA is still not possible. Here we present Structural Variant Search (SVS), a method to accurately detect rare somSVs by low-coverage sequencing. We demonstrate direct quantitative assessment of elevated somSV frequencies induced by known clastogenic compounds in human primary cells.
