PMCID: 5774751
PMID: 29351342
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191224

[…] patients with comparable phenotypes and mutations in this gene (please see section for details). the genes vwa2, ttll12, nell2, and tssk4 were furthermore submitted to the online database genematcher ( genematcher facilitates the exchange of genetic and phenotypic information by connecting clinicians and researchers world-wide. however, none of the genes […]

DOI: 10.1212/NXG.0000000000000209

[…] a biallelic 3-bp deletion (p.k19del) in chp1 that cosegregates with the disease. neither focused screening for chp1 variants in 2 cohorts (arca: n = 319 and neuromics: n = 657) nor interrogating genematcher yielded additional variants, thus revealing the scarcity of chp1 mutations. we show that mutant chp1 fails to integrate into functional protein complexes and is prone to aggregation, […]

PMCID: 5839044
PMID: 29343805
DOI: 10.1038/s41431-017-0088-9

[…] malformations., the successful gathering of information of affected individuals with similar phenotypes and likely disease-causing variants in the candidate causative gene was possible due to genematcher ( []., the laboratory and bioinformatics analysis for the variant identification was performed as previously described []. the study was approved by the bioethics […]

PMCID: 5793174
PMID: 29320387
DOI: 10.3390/genes9010021

[…] the past few years, the erdc was able to identify several genes associated with irds [,,,]. to enable discovery of additional families harboring overlapping pathogenic variants the online web-tool genematcher may also be utilized []. this tool allows for researchers and clinicians to upload a gene with information about the identified genetic variants and the phenotype found in the patient […]

PMCID: 5735520
PMID: 29258477
DOI: 10.1186/s12896-017-0410-1

[…] phenotyping in the era of mps has led to deep phenotyping projects based on the human phenotype ontology [] and international collaborative initiatives such as decipher [], phenomecentral [], genematcher [], mygene2 [] and matchmaker exchange []. in addition to a range of physical, cognitive and behavioural characteristics, deep phenotyping software requires the clinician to accurately […]
