DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13586

[…] sequencing data processing and variant calling (snp and indels) with the genome analysis toolkit revealed 60,612 to 63,887 genetic variants per proband (). variant filtering was performed with the varank programme using stringent criteria excluding (i) non-pathogenic variants defined in dbsnp 138, (ii) variants represented with an allele frequency of more than 1% in dbsnp, the exome variant […]

[…] exome aggregation consortium (exac) []. recurrent variations found in more than 10 % of the patients in our cohort were also filtered. subsequent variant annotation and ranking was performed using varank v1.4.0 [] configured with alamut batch (interactive biosoftware)., gaps in ngs coverage of the targeted regions (i. e. coverage <30x, the threshold recommended in the literature [, ]), […]

[…] company (casava 1.8, illumina and finally detects from 80965 to 82263 variants (snps and indels) per proband (table ). annotation, ranking, and filtering of genetic variants were performed with the varank program (geoffroy et al., ). very stringent criteria were used for excluding non-pathogenic variants, in particular: (1) variants represented with an allele frequency of more than 1% in dbsnp […]

[…] samtools v0.1.18 mpileup and samtools 0.1.7 pileup. variant quality scores were recalibrated using gatk. variants were annotated using snpeff v2.0.5, gatk v2.5.2 and snpsift v3.3c (, ). finally, varank () was used to rank discovered variants, which were filtered on homozygous state in the two affected patients. variants identified by exome sequencing were confirmed by sanger sequencing […]

[…] with the gatk toolkit v3.1 using hard-filtering parameters. variants were annotated using snpeffv.3.4. variant frequencies were compared with an internal exome database and prioritised using varank. variants were prioritised by allele frequency (<1% in the single nucleotide polymorphism database (dbsnp137), 1000 genomes database, exome variant server (evs) database and our internal […]
