HISAT-genotype is a next-generation genomic analysis software platform capable of assembling and genotyping human genes and genomic regions. Thie software leverages HISAT2s graph FM index and graph alignemnt algorithm to align reads to a specially constructed graph genome. An Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm finds the maximum likelihood estimates for each gene allele and a guided de Bruijn graph is used to construct the allele sequences.

News and Releases:

  • 01/23/2020: HISAT-genotype 1.1.3 release
    • Incremental change to address bugs with using -U option
  • 7/11/2019: HISAT-genotype 1.1.2-beta release
    • Wrapper has been added to HISAT-genotype. hisatgenotype and hisatgenotype_toolkit runs the entirety of HISAT-genotype
    • Argument names for scripts have been made more consistent
    • HISAT-genotype code has been consolidated into modules. All core functionality is now in modules
    • Scripts for HISAT-genotype have been consolidated into single directory and are runnable through hisatgenotype_toolkit
    • Changes made to debug mode to prevent overwritting of debug results through each iteration
    • Advanced arguments are hidden by default in hisatgentoype

  • 2/1/2018: HISAT-genotype 1.0.1-beta release
    • HLA assembly results are reported in the PDF format, instead of the HTML format.

  • 6/8/2017: HISAT-genotype 1.0.0-beta release (first release)
    • HISAT-genotype currently supports HLA typing, the discovery of novel HLA alleles, DNA fingerprinting analysis, and CYP2D6 typing.
    • The platform is currently designed for processing whole genome sequencing reads produced by Illumina platforms (e.g. 100 to 300 bps) and works great with paired-end reads and at least 20x coverage.
    • We plan to create consortia to work together in enabling the platform to analyze the whole human genome with its >20,000 genes.

  • 6/8/2017: The HISAT-genotype source code is available in a public GitHub repository.
