Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001008634 We performed whole genome sequencing (WGS) in an ASD cohort of 68 individuals from 22 families enriched for recent shared ancestry. Samples were sequenced using Illumina HiSeq X platform, and Variants (single nucleotide variants (SNVs) and insertions or deletions (indels)) were detected using GATK with HaplotypeCaller. Quality control checks for (i) duplicate samples, (ii) samples per platform, (iii) genome call rate, (iv) missingness rate, (v) singleton rate, (vi) heterozygosity rate, (vii) homozygosity rate, (viii) Ti/Tv ratio, (ix) inbreeding coefficient, and (x) sex inference were performed as previously described. Variant call format (VCF) files for SNVs and indels were annotated with ANNOVAR using allele frequencies from the 1000 Genomes project (2015; 1000G), the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD), and the Greater Middle East Variome Project (GME). 1
