adVNTR - A tool for genotyping VNTRs

adVNTR is a tool for genotyping Variable Number Tandem Repeats (VNTR) from sequence data. It works with both NGS short reads (Illumina HiSeq) and SMRT reads (PacBio) and finds diploid repeating counts for VNTRs and identifies possible mutations in the VNTR sequences.
