Summary: Information from the literature piece (e.g. Author, Publisher, DOI) and the study experimental design (e.g. sample size, source of probands, sequencing technology.) For a full list of sources of variants, be sure to check out the publications page. Documentation and description of our work can be found on the help page.

Breakdown by exonic function: We annotated the variants with an effect prediction using ANNOVAR. The functions are categories of variants, such as frameshift variants (i.e. frameshift_elongation (SO:0001909)), loss/gain of stop codon, SNVs and non-frameshift variants. See the full list of possible annotations for exonic variants in the documentation.
