[…] for gene prioritization. under these conditions we found 12 methods: biograph [], candid [], glad4u [], polysearch [], cipher [], guildify [], disgenet [], geneprospector [], genie [], snps3d [], genedistiller [] and metaranker []. the following methods: cipher, guildify and disgenet were not selected from the prioritization portal but from literature, however, fulfilling the same two […]

[…] software was used to analyze the genotypes and for the identification of regions of homozygosity >2 mb []. candidate disease genes located within the homozygous intervals were identified using genedistiller software []., mutations in calpain 3 (capn3) were screened by direct sequencing using primer pairs for the 24 coding capn3 exons. all exons were amplified by pcr using hotstart taq […]

[…] polyphen2 and sift (). mutation taster rapidly evaluates the disease causing potential of a variant with an accuracy of 91.1 ± 0.1% by integrating information from different databases such as genedistiller, biomart, dbsnp, swissprot and uniprot (). polymorphism phenotyping v2 (polyphen2) is designed to predict the impact of amino acid alteration on protein structure and function ().

[…] network with functional annotations to favor the candidate genes that interact with the seed genes (which defined the disease of interest) and also have similar functional annotations (). similarly, genedistiller uses gene-phenotype associations, gene expression patterns and protein–protein interactions among other data to propose candidate gene prioritization (). there exist other methods […]
