Adding RSIDs to your SVS marker mapped spreadsheet

SVS platform

In the new Genotype Imputation tool that is coming soon to SVS, allele encoding is an important part of matching data between the target and the reference panels. 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. Our PhoRank algorithm will be available in our upcoming SVS release to also aid in the numerous research workflows performed on SNPs… Read more »
