Genomic Analysis in the Age of Human Genome Sequencing.

Affordable genome sequencing technologies promise to revolutionize the field of human genetics by enabling comprehensive studies that interrogate all classes of genome variation, genome-wide, across t...

Enabling genome-wide association testing with multiple diseases and no healthy controls.

While large-scale whole genome sequencing is feasible the high costs compel investigators to focus on disease subjects. As a result large sequencing datasets of samples with different diseases are oft...

SRG Extractor: A Skinny Reference Genome Approach for Reduced-Representation Sequencing.

Reduced-representation sequencing (RRS) is a genome-wide scanning method for simultaneous discovery and genotyping of thousands to millions of SNPs that is used across a wide range of species. However...

Increased Diagnostic Yield of Spastic Paraplegia with or Without Cerebellar Ataxia Through Whole-Genome Sequencing.

Inherited disorders of spasticity or ataxia exist on a spectrum with overlapping causative genes and phenotypes. We investigated the use of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) to detect a genetic cause when...

Whole-Genome Bisulfite Sequencing for the Methylation Analysis of Insect Genomes.

DNA methylation is a conserved epigenetic modification of animal genomes, but genome methylation patterns appear surprisingly diverse in insects. Whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) represents a ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques to determine the entire sequence of the GENOME of an organism or individual.

An analysis comparing the allele frequencies of all available (or a whole GENOME representative set of) polymorphic markers in unrelated patients with a specific symptom or disease condition, and those of healthy controls to identify markers associated with a specific disease or condition.

A group of slowly progressive inherited disorders affecting motor and sensory peripheral nerves. Subtypes include HMSNs I-VII. HMSN I and II both refer to CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE. HMSN III refers to hypertrophic neuropathy of infancy. HMSN IV refers to REFSUM DISEASE. HMSN V refers to a condition marked by a hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy associated with spastic paraplegia (see SPASTIC PARAPLEGIA, HEREDITARY). HMSN VI refers to HMSN associated with an inherited optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHIES, HEREDITARY), and HMSN VII refers to HMSN associated with retinitis pigmentosa. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1343)

Specific regions that are mapped within a GENOME. Genetic loci are usually identified with a shorthand notation that indicates the chromosome number and the position of a specific band along the P or Q arm of the chromosome where they are found. For example the locus 6p21 is found within band 21 of the P-arm of CHROMOSOME 6. Many well known genetic loci are also known by common names that are associated with a genetic function or HEREDITARY DISEASE.

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.
