[…] 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 […]

[…] v.2.0 (roche, madison, wi, usa) according to the manufacturers' protocols. illumina paired-end sequencing (2 × 100 bp), alignment, and variant calling were performed as described previously., mendelscan was used to rank single nucleotide variants (snvs) and indels based on a combination of segregation, population frequency, retinal expression, and predicted functional impact. the exome […]

[…] 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 […]
