Canine leishmaniasis: Genome wide analysis and antibody response to Lutzomyia longipalpis saliva

PLoS One
PMCID: 5942812
PMID: 29742167
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0197215

[…] f the fitted models were used as pseudo-phenotypes to test the association between genotypes and phenotypes in a mixed linear model controlled for polygenic effects and sample structure (EMMAX) [] in SNP & Variation Suite (SVS) v.8 (Golden Helix, Inc., Bozeman, MT, USA, Genotypes were filtered in order to remove SNPs with a call rate below 95%, a minor allele frequency (MAF) […]


Genome wide copy number variant analysis reveals variants associated with 10 diverse production traits in Holstein cattle

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5930521
PMID: 29716533
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4699-5

[…] ce for SNP-based GWAS studies, including studies of large populations of livestock. As a result, software packages have been developed and published for CNV prediction from SNP chip data, such as the SNP & Variation Suite (SVS; Golden Helix, Bozeman, MT), which facilitate a low-cost approach to detect common CNV within a population for GWAS analysis [, ].Because Holsteins are the largest milk-prod […]


PITX2 deficiency and associated human disease: insights from the zebrafish model

Hum Mol Genet
PMCID: 5932568
PMID: 29506241
DOI: 10.1093/hmg/ddy074

[…] et of interest were calculated, and the Z-score for each replicate was derived by dividing the difference between the replicate and the mean by the standard deviation. Z-scores were imported into the SNP and Variation Suite software (Golden Helix, Inc., Bozeman, MT) for heatmap synthesis. […]


Genetic variation in Aquaporin 4 moderates the relationship between sleep and brain Aβ amyloid burden

PMCID: 5865132
PMID: 29479071
DOI: 10.1038/s41398-018-0094-x

[…] ver2.3, with the 1000 genome reference panel (2015 release). SNP data from the AQP4 genomic region (GRCh37 Chr18:24,432,000–24,446,000) were extracted and subjected to quality control in GoldenHelix SNP and Variation Suite (SVS version 8.7.1), which included removal of SNPs with call rate < 95%, Minor allele frequency < 5% and departure from Hardy–Weinberg Equilibrium (p < 0.05), leaving 32 SNPs […]


Identification of novel candidate genes for 46,XY disorders of sex development (DSD) using a C57BL/6J YPOS mouse model

PMCID: 5789682
PMID: 29378665
DOI: 10.1186/s13293-018-0167-9
call_split See protocol

[…] rvals ± 2 bp using GATK’s Unified Genotyper, then recalibrated and filtered using GATK variant-quality score recalibration and variant filtration tools. All high-quality variants were annotated using SNP&Variation Suite and VarSeq—variant filtration and annotation software (Golden Helix, USA). All variants were filtered by a minor allele frequency (MAF) of < 1% and intersected with the DSD gene li […]
