A tool to detect impurity and somatic variation, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), in somatic tumor sequencing data. The Virmid algorithm uses maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) for the joint probabilities of control and disease genotypes and sample contamination level.
Genetics; DNA polymorphism
