Cerebellar Atrophy and Changes in Cytokines Associated with the CACNA1A R583Q Mutation in a Russian Familial Hemiplegic Migraine Type 1 Family

PMCID: 5581831
PMID: 28900389
DOI: 10.3389/fncel.2017.00263
call_split See protocol

[…] nce genome sequence. (GRch37/hg19) using the algorithm BWA-MEM (v0.7.15), quality control of input data, alignment, concentration, and coverage of target regions was carried out by FastQC, BAMQC, and NGSrich, duplicates was removed by sambamba (v0.6.5). The nucleotide variation was searched with GATK HaplotypeCaller + UnifiedGenotyper (to produce a combined VCF-file).Annotation was performed with […]


Comprehensive genetic testing in the clinical evaluation of 1119 patients with hearing loss

Hum Genet
PMCID: 4796320
PMID: 26969326
DOI: 10.1007/s00439-016-1648-8

[…] with Burrows–Wheeler Alignment (BWA) (Li and Durbin ), duplicate removal with Picard, local re-alignment and variant calling with GATK Unified Genotyper (McKenna et al. ), enrichment statistics with NGSRich (Frommolt et al. ), and variant reporting and annotation with custom-produced software. Copy number variant analysis was performed as described (Nord et al. ; Shearer et al. ). […]


Mutations in apoptosis inducing factor cause X linked recessive auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder

J Med Genet
PMCID: 4518735
PMID: 25986071
DOI: 10.1136/jmedgenet-2014-102961

[…] performed using the Genome Analysis Toolkit ( By previously described criteria, the low-quality variations were filtered out.Target enrichment was analysed using NGSrich. Variants were filtered against 1000 Genomes data, and all variants with a minor allele frequency (MAF) >1% were removed from the analysis. Functional annotation of genetic variants was perfor […]


Long term survival in a child with severe encephalopathy, multiple respiratory chain deficiency and GFM1 mutations

Front Genet
PMCID: 4369643
PMID: 25852744
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2015.00102

[…] data was developed with FastQC v0.10.1 program ( Reads were aligned to the reference genome GRCh37 with BWA v0.7.5a software (Li and Durbin, ). NGSrich v0.7.5 software ( used as a control previous to variant detection, and BEDTools 2.17.0 ( and Picard 1.93 (http://pica […]


Copy number variants are a common cause of non syndromic hearing loss

Genome Med

call_split See protocol

[…] tools, including read mapping with Burrows-Wheeler Alignment (BWA) [], duplicate removal with Picard, local re-alignment and variant calling with GATK Unified Genotyper [], enrichment statistics with NGSRich [], and reporting and annotation of variants with custom software [].For copy number analysis, we completed read mapping, duplicate removal, and re-alignment as described above. Next we used t […]


Pre capture multiplexing improves efficiency and cost effectiveness of targeted genomic enrichment

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3534602
PMID: 23148716

[…] sent in ≥15% of reads to be considered. Variants were compared against our database of deafness variants ( Statistics were calculated using Samtools [], Bedtools [] and NGSRich []. Copy number variants (CNVs) were determined using a previously published method that normalizes sequencing depth among samples, identifies outliers, and calls via a sliding-window method [ […]
