Default PubMed: Identification of causal sequence variants of disease in the next generation

Syndicated from PubMed RSS Feeds

Identification of causal sequence variants of disease in the next generation sequencing era.

Methods Mol Biol. 2011;700:37-46

Authors: Kingsley CB

Over the last decade, genetic studies have identified numerous associations between single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) alleles in the human genome and important human diseases. Unfortunately, extending these initial associative findings to identification of the true causal variants that underlie disease susceptibility is usually not a straightforward task. Causal variant identification typically involves searching through sizable regions of genomic DNA in the vicinity of disease-associated SNPs for sequence variants in functional elements including protein coding, regulatory, and structural sequences. Prioritization of these searches is greatly aided by knowledge of the location of functional sequences in the human genome. This chapter briefly reviews several of the common approaches used to functionally annotate the human genome and discusses how this information can be used in concert with the emerging technology of next generation high-throughput sequencing to identify causal variants of human disease.
