A pipeline combining multiple strategies for prioritizing heterozygous variants for the identification of candidate genes in exome datasets

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 5441048
PMID: 28532469
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-017-0107-5

[…] fect the gene function and hundreds of candidate variants need to be filtered. So, an improved workflow to identify potential candidate variants involved in the disease is needed. Software package as MendelScan try to solve this providing a composite score improved with tissue expression data []. However, systemic disease or disease involving tissues with multiple cells types and low-quality gene […]


Mutations of RagA GTPase in mTORC1 Pathway Are Associated with Autosomal Dominant Cataracts

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 4905677

[…] mutations, the exomes were analyzed using step-by-step filtering strategies (). The estimated fraction of shared variants by descent was calculated using the identity-by-descent method implemented by MendelScan version 1.2.1 ( [] according to the autosomal dominant inheritance in Family 1. Genetic variants were first filtered to retain only non-synonymous sin […]
