News about fusion genes discovery

Fusion discovery from RNA-seq goes on. Finally, a nice and useful publication trying to establish perfectly the variance between fusions and chimeras was published. Probably it will help to decrease the mess in the area (especially interpretation of termins like chimera, fusion, read-through...).

Also, InFusion tooklit is being applied. The manuscript describing it was already cited in the recent investigation of meningoma methylation patterns. Moreover, it was included and compared to other tools by Brian Haas in upcoming paper about STAR-fusion method. Glad to observe precise and honest comparison of methods, look forward to see this manuscript published.
