PMID: 29358691
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02380-9

[…] loci, we annotated their corresponding credible sets using the variant effector predictor (vep) for coding variants (supplementary data ), and the combined annotation-dependent depletion (cadd) and linsight tools for non-coding variation (supplementary data  ). in addition, we tested the effect of all variants on expression across multiple tissues by interrogating gtex and rna-sequencing gene […]

PMID: 28635624
DOI: 10.3390/genes8060167

[…] annotation of genetic variants (dann) [], functional analysis through hidden markov models (fathmm) [], and linear inference of natural selection from interspersed genomically coherent elements (linsight) [] have been developed to predict functionality of variants outside the coding regions. these tools are based on supervised machine learning algorithms using a well-characterized training […]

[…] a credible set to have similar statistical support (; ). inclusion of experimental evidence from epigenetic marks or signatures of evolutionary conservation into scores such as cadd (), cato (), and linsight () promises to improve resolution, as do methods such as rtc () and pics (), which prioritize variants based on the structure of ld at a locus. in general, these approaches assume parsimony, […]
