Performing a Trio Analysis in VSClinical

Abstract

We recently have exposed the powerful application of our newly released product, VSClinical and the included ACMG Guidelines. Our previous webcasts covered some basics on new algorithms and annotations behind the variant scoring and classification. Taking a step back for a moment, there are many long-time VarSeq users are familiar with our Trio template that comes packaged with the software. But, how does the Trio analysis fit into VSClinical?

In this webcast, we are going to explore some modifications to our baseline trio template showing how to incorporate the ACMG classification results into the various workflows. This will include capturing de novo, compound heterozygous, and dominant heterozygous variants. We will score criteria related to variant frequency, gene impact, and available study information. Additionally, we will also investigate the clinical section of the ACMG guideline tool to see how to leverage the inheritance and allelic state of each variant. After this webcast, the user will discover new avenues of examining trio data by utilizing the ACMG classifier to improve upon one of our classic templates.
