FamSeq citation


Using familial information for variant filtering in high throughput sequencing studies

PMCID: 4185103
PMID: 25129038
DOI: 10.1007/s00439-014-1479-4

[…] furthermore, using a family-oriented hts analysis pipeline can also produce mendelian consistent genotype data from hts data by making use of variant callers that incorporate familial information. famseq (peng et al. ) and polymutt (li et al. ) improve variant calling by making use of familial information while mate-clever (marschall et al. ) performs family aware indel detection and calling.
