Lessons learned from additional research analyses of unsolved clinical exome cases

Genome Med
PMCID: 5361813
PMID: 28327206
DOI: 10.1186/s13073-017-0412-6

[…] ated CNVs; these tools detect a clinically relevant intragenic CNV when at least three contiguous exons are deleted [, ]. Therefore, in addition to these algorithms, we developed an in-house pipeline HMZDelFinder ( [] to detect potential homozygous and hemizygous small intragenic deletions from WES data, including single exon “dropout alleles” that may […]


Exome sequencing in mostly consanguineous Arab families with neurologic disease provides a high potential molecular diagnosis rate

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 4950750
PMID: 27435318
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-016-0208-3

[…] We used CoNIFER [], CoNVex, and HMZDelFinder to predict potential heterozygous and homozygous CNVs based on exome data. Although many subjects have been pre-screened with karyotyping and array CGH, this bioinformatics approach enabl […]
