What is Bioinformatic Filtering?

Recently I gave a presentation on bioinformatic filtering: the process of using quality scores, annotation databases, and functional prediction scores to intelligently and quickly reduce your variant search space. View the recording here» In this webcast, I mention that filtering is something we have been doing for a long time, and that there are some great examples that use exome… Read more »
