What is the aim of the Parallelism Analysis tool ?
To identify genetic variations OR mutated Genomic Objects (GO) SHARED BY several clones in different lineages.
How to use this tool ?
First of all, choose the subject of your analysis ("Shared Mutations" or "Shared Mutated GOs") in the "Focus on" sub-section.
The "Shared Mutations" mode:
The "Shared Mutated GOs" mode:
Then, the procedure is quite similar in the two analysis modes:
How to read the table of results ?
A. In the "Shared Mutations" mode:
1) Description of common mutations:
It depends on your definition criteria.
2) Genomic context:
3) Distribution of the clones sharing the same mutations according to the lineage they belong to:
Be careful: The result number may change depending on how identical mutations are defined!
1) Description of common mutated GOs:
2) Distribution of the clones sharing the same mutated GOs according to the lineage they belong to:
Trick: In both cases, you can export the Genomic Objects reported in the result table to a private Gene Cart thanks to the "Export to Gene Cart" button.
