  • Exome sequencing for homozygous recessive disease

    I am naive in the field of genomics. Please guide me through these questions.

    If I have exome sequencing data of a family with a homozygous recessive disease, how should I analyze the data?Do we assume that the cases should be homozygous for a given genotype and controls as heterozygous?

    Also, are there any tool/webpage that help us identify known SNPs associated to a particular disease? I want to check if the SNPs that I have obtained are previously known to be associated with my disease of interest?

    For your second question, how about ClinVar?
    ClinVar archives and aggregates information about relationships among variation and human health.

      Are you positive that they're homozygous and not compound heterozygous? The latter would be more likely unless they're consanguineous.

        @ dpryan - There is a few incidents of consanguinity in the family but since I am looking at a complex disease (asthma), compound heterozygosity is also a possibility. Can you please tell me how can we decide which model fits best?

        @blancha - Thank you for the suggestion. I would try it.. Thanks again

          There's no hard and fast rule that I'm aware of. In general, the greater the consanguinity the more likely the variant is homozygous.

              Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
              by seqadmin


              Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

              Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
              by seqadmin


              Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
