Characterization of a variant of gap junction protein α8 identified in a family with hereditary cataract
[…] f interest was eluted and subjected to 18 cycles of DNA amplification. The sample was then sequenced using an Illumina HiSeq2000 sequencer (Illumina, San Diego, CA, USA). The data were filtered using GeneTalk (http://www.gene-talk.de) . Variants were analyzed with Polyphen-2 (http://genetics.bwh.harvard.edu/pph2/) and SIFT (Sorting Intolerant From Tolerant Web Server, version 5.1.1, database rel […]
MyGeneFriends: A Social Network Linking Genes, Genetic Diseases, and Researchers
[…] , with wiki-inspired approaches like Proteopedia  or WikiGene , collaborative sequence annotations such as WebApollo , or voting for medical relevance and scientific evidence of variations with GeneTalk . Recent initiatives such as Coremine or MAGI  combine these trends. Coremine allows exploration of various biomedical concepts and connections between them, addition of private or public […]
Exome Sequencing in a Family with Luminal Type Breast Cancer Underpinned by Variation in the Methylation Pathway
[…] on loci led to repeat mapping of the reads to a synthetic Caucasian major allele reference sequence (CEU-MARS) , following the same process illustrated in . Resulting VCFs were then processed using GeneTalk , a web-based tool for filtering and annotation of uploadable VCFs.A coverage depth of 15× was used for detection of potentially causative gene variants, prior to confirmation by Sanger seq […]
A likelihood ratio based method to predict exact pedigrees for complex families from next generation sequencing data
[…] ding as well as increasing degrees of error rates we also simulated samples based on sequencing data from real individuals. The java application, as well as the visualizing R script, is integrated in GeneTalk (), and also available as a standalone application at www.gene-talk.de/vcf2ped. We analyzed the performance of our approach for a decreasing number of exomic and genomic markers. For exomic m […]
Crowdsourced direct to consumer genomic analysis of a family quartet
[…] ound population (in cases where such numbers are known), variant predicted to be deleterious by several prediction tools and an exact match of the variant for the nucleotide change (Additional file ).GeneTalk: Various filter settings were implemented for analysis using GeneTalk . First, variants of Father and Mother were analysed to look for screening of pathogenic heterozygous risk alleles that […]
A nonsense mutation of human XRCC4 is associated with adult onset progressive encephalocardiomyopathy
[…] nd 300 bp. In-solution targeted enrichment of exonic sequences was performed using the 64 Mb Exon Capture kit from Nimblgen. Then, the captured library was sequenced on Hiseq2000 platform (Illumina). GeneTalk (www.gene-talk.de) and Ingenuity Variant Analysis (www.ingenuity.com) web applications were used for variant filtering. Polyphen2, SIFT, and Mutation taster were used for pathogenicity predic […]
