The analysis of whole-genome or exome sequencing data from trios and pedigrees has been successfully applied to the identification of disease-causing mutations. However, most methods used to identify and genotype genetic variants from next-generation sequencing data ignore the relationships between samples, resulting in significant Mendelian errors, false(More)
Summary: To evaluate and compare the performance of variant calling methods and their confidence scores, comparisons between a test call set and a “gold standard” need to be carried out. Unfortunately, these comparisons are not straightforward with the current Variant Call Files (VCF), which are the standard output of most variant calling algorithms for(More)
