The role of small in frame insertions/deletions in inherited eye disorders and how structural modelling can help estimate their pathogenicity

Orphanet J Rare Dis
PMCID: 5024463
PMID: 27628848
DOI: 10.1186/s13023-016-0505-0

[…] quence and affecting gene expression []. A number of computational tools that functionally annotate indels are available including SIFT-indel [], PROVEAN [], DDG-in [], CADD [], PriVar [], PinPor [], HMMvar [], KD4i [], and VEST-indel []. Although some of these tools are reported to achieve relatively high sensitivity and specificity values [], predicting the effect of protein-coding (frameshiftin […]


Predicting the combined effect of multiple genetic variants

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 4520001
PMID: 26223264
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-015-0040-4

[…] efore, it is important to study the joint effect of multiple variants.This paper focuses on predicting the joint effect of variants from a single gene using a previously proposed hidden Markov model, HMMvar []. As the hidden Markov model is computed from the multiple protein sequence alignment for homologous proteins from different species, it reflects extent of evolutionary conservation naturally […]
