An Integrative Computational Approach for Prioritization of Genomic Variants

PLoS One
PMCID: 4266634
PMID: 25506935
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0114903

[…] erimental results and prediction of novel candidate genetic factors for any disorder of interest to the user. The power of the approach lies in massive integration of various classes of data from the Lynx (e.g. functional, phenotypic, pathways information), VISTA (e.g. genomic, evolutionary information), and RaptorX (proteomic and structural information). In the spina bifida example, the DBDB know […]


The 2014 Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue and an updated NAR online Molecular Biology Database Collection

Nucleic Acids Res

[…] copy-number variants; and the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV) at the Toronto’s Centre for Applied Genomics (). There are also several more specialized databases (canSAR, DriverDB, FINDBase, HbVar, Lynx, NECTAR, Progenetix) that cover genetic defects leading to various human diseases, including cancer. In addition, three separate databases, Selectome, dbPSHP and 1000 Genomes Selection Browser, r […]
