Short Description VISOR is a haplotype-aware structural variants simulator for short and long read sequencing
Long Description VISOR is an efficient and versatile command-line application, capable to simulate structural variants and small/single-nucleotide variants in a haplotype-resolved manner. VISOR currently supports simulations of bulk short (Illumina) and long (PacBio-ONT) reads sequencing data. VISOR also supports simulations of single cell, strand-seq data and includes a module, actively under development, capable to simulate 10X linked reads data. VISOR is readily applicable to canger genomics, enabling the simulation of tumour purity (normal in tumour contamination), heterogeneity (mix of several subclones) and aneuploidy. VISOR also incorporates capture biases, a crucial feature for whole-exome data sets and panel sequencing applications.
