If the same platform provider is being used, then A/B encoding can be used. However, it’s better to use the Reference/Alternate allele encoding associated with AGCT format to ensure accuracy. If an… Read more »

PhoRank in SVS: Gene Ranking for Your Research Genotypes

gene ranking

Since we released our Phenotype Gene Ranking algorithm in VarSeq, it has become a staple of the way people conduct their analysis. It allows for a combination of filtering with ranking to prioritize follow-up interpretations of analysis results.
