Complex Genomic Rearrangements (CGRs) are an important aspect of the genomic landscape of many tumours. CGRs often disrupt genes and fuse other genes, in some cases promoting tumour development. nFuse predicts fusion transcripts and associated CGRs from matched RNA-seq and Whole Genome Shotgun Sequencing (WGSS).
