[…] ed pipeline, followed by variant calling with the Genome Analysis Toolkit Unified Genotyper (DePristo et al., ). Variants were subsequently annotated and filtered with the in-house developed database VariantDB (Vandeweyer et al., ), which uses ANNOVAR. Heterozygous coding or splice site (±2 bp from exon-intron boundaries for nucleotide substitution, and ±5 bp for multi-bp deletions or insertions) […]

[…] Penzberg, Germany), and sequencing on HiSeq 2000 (Illumina Inc, San Diego, CA, USA), all following standard protocols. Data analysis was performed using Galaxy (see URLs)-. Variants were filtered by VariantDB (see URLs, manuscript in preparation) to exclude variants with (1) low quality, using thresholds based on correlation between NGS data and SNP-chip genotyping; (2) intronic or intergenic loc […]
