The application of massively parallel sequencing (MPS) platforms has begun to revolutionize our understanding of the immense variation in the human genome and the complexity that can underlie genetic susceptibility to disease. The utility of exome capture MPS through the identification of genes for rare Mendelian disorders based on analysis of only a few(More)
PALB2 is a breast cancer (BC) susceptibility gene. Its product is the binding partner of BRCA1 and BRCA2 and is involved in DNA repair. Studies of multiple-case BC families have reported that truncating mono-allelic PALB2 mutations, on average, increase BC risk two to six fold. Our recent population-based study estimated that carriers of PALB2 c.3113G>A had(More)
