Human genome meeting 2016

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 4896275
PMID: 27294413
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-016-0063-5

[…] loyed for hybridization, has yielded 7.7Gb of data per exome providing a coverage of 96% at 20X or greater. The Spike-in PKv2 reagent is comprised of 3,643 additional unique gene targets derived from GeneTests, OMIM, selected cancer genes and Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratory positive cases. The addition of this reagent converts >700-800 genes from partially covered to fully covered at ≥ 20X cover […]

GeneSense: a new approach for human gene annotation integrated with protein protein interaction networks

Sci Rep
PMCID: 3966033
PMID: 24667292
DOI: 10.1038/srep04474

[…] between species and homologs information that helps to elucidate how the gene is related to other genes in a family, such as that demonstrated in TreeFam, MGI, RGD, and HCOP. Others databases such as GeneTests, UCSC, CiteXplore (, GeneCards and pathway information are also linked to GeneSense. Gene information is based on gene definitions from HGNC and related links via bo […]


Genome Wide Analysis of Functional and Evolutionary Features of Tele Enhancers

[…] lopment GO category () [P = 2 × 10−11, using DAVID ()], (2) in the neighborhood of p300 heart enhancers (hypergeometric distribution P = 4 × 10−34), and (3) in the heart disease genes reported by the GeneTests database (; P = 4 × 10−13, Figure S1, and File S1), suggesting a significant association between these highly expressed genes and human heart development (see […]


Next generation DNA sequencing of HEXA: a step in the right direction for carrier screening

PMCID: 3865593
PMID: 24498621
DOI: 10.1002/mgg3.37

[…] half (33/61) of identified TSD alleles (Table ). Three additional common pathogenic or pseudodeficiency variants that are part of most mutation panels used in targeted mutation analysis (according to GeneTests) were detected in another 10 alleles. In addition, 10 variants, one of them novel, represented the remaining 29% (18/61) alleles.The missense mutation p.Arg504Cys was found in two carriers a […]
