CCDS citations


Familial monophasic acute transverse myelitis due to the pathogenic variant in VPS37A

PMCID: 5820602
PMID: 29473047
DOI: 10.1212/NXG.0000000000000213
call_split See protocol

[…] We performed whole-exome sequencing (WES) in 2 affected sisters and their 2 healthy brothers and 1 healthy sister. We captured the consensus coding sequence exonic regions and flanking intronic regions totaling ∼51 Mb using the Agilent SureSelect XT kit and performed paired-end 100 bp reads with the Illumina HiSeq 2500 platform. […]


Whole genome transcriptomics reveals global effects including up regulation of Francisella pathogenicity island gene expression during active stringent response in the highly virulent Francisella tularensis subsp. tularensis SCHU S4

PMCID: 5845702
PMID: 29034854
DOI: 10.1099/mic.0.000550
call_split See protocol

[…] TopHat in local alignment mode. The short read alignments were used as the input for HTSeq, a python framework for working with high-throughput sequencing data []. Read counts were generated for each consensus coding sequence (CCS) in the reference sequence in HTSeq. Differentially expressed genes were then identified in each condition using the R package DESeq, by comparing the read counts of eac […]


APPRIS 2017: principal isoforms for multiple gene sets

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753224
PMID: 29069475
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx997

[…] ence gene set. As a result we have been able to improve the performance of each of the core modules in APPRIS. The gold standard set for principal isoforms are those genes with just one CCDS variant (consensus coding sequence, ). Tests have shown that unique CCDS variants (transcripts annotated consistently by RefSeq and Ensembl/GENCODE manual annotators) and APPRIS principal isoforms are both hig […]


Liver myofibroblasts of murine origins express mesothelin: Identification of novel rat mesothelin splice variants*

PLoS One
PMCID: 5595315
PMID: 28898276
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0184499

[…] m the DTU-CBS Prediction Servers []. The analysis results are listed in . A multiple alignment of cloned rat Mesothelin splice variant nucleotide sequences was performed with wild-type rat Mesothelin consensus coding sequence (NM_031658.1) as reference, and nucleotide sequence identity (as percentage) determined, using open-access MView tool from the EMBL-EBI bioinformatics web and programmatic to […]


Annotating pathogenic non coding variants in genic regions

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5550444
PMID: 28794409
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00141-2

[…] genic-assigned training variants (Supplementary Data ).The list of benign variants was obtained from control trios published by Iossifov et al.. All 402 de novo synonymous variants resided within the consensus coding sequence (CCDS) and were identified from individuals not ascertained for any specific disorder. De novo variants were used because they represent novel variants in the gene pool and t […]


Rare, protein truncating variants in ATM, CHEK2 and PALB2, but not XRCC2, are associated with increased breast cancer risks

J Med Genet
PMCID: 5740532
PMID: 28779002
DOI: 10.1136/jmedgenet-2017-104588

[…] The Fluidigm Access Array 48.48 system was used for library preparation (see online ). We designed 211 amplicons (see online ) to cover 98.1% of the bases within Consensus Coding Sequence (CCDS) exons of the four genes (see online ). Each library of 211 amplicons for 1536 samples was sequenced in 100-base paired-end mode on a single lane of an Illumina Hi-Seq2 […]
