NAR Breakthrough Article: denovo-db: a compendium of human de novo variants

April 3, 2017

.@denovodb: a compendium of [initially ~33K] human de novo variants w. phenotype, freely downloadable as a TSV table

As of July 2016, denovo-db contained 40 different studies and 32,991 de novo variants from 23,098 trios. Database features include basic variant information (chromosome location, change, type); detailed annotation at the transcript and protein levels; severity scores; frequency; validation status; and, most importantly, the phenotype of the individual with the variant.

Core services: Reward bioinformaticians

May 9, 2015

QT:{{"The research system does not recognize bioinformaticians for doing what the scientific community needs most. “People realize the importance, but currently there are no real solutions,” says Xiaole Liu, a bioinformatician at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, and at Tongji University in Shanghai, China. This is why it can take more than six months to fill positions at a core, why many of biology’s brightest are leaving science for technology companies, and why conventional biologists wait nine months to get help to dissect their data.
