Study Description

Transcriptome studies in patients with rare genetic diseases can potentially aid in theinterpretation of likely causal genetic variation through identification of altered transcriptabundance and/or structure. RNA-Seq is the most sensitive assay for both investigatingtranscript structure and abundanceThe primary aim of this pilot project is to investigate to what degree integrating exome-Seqand RNA-Seq data on the same individual can accelerate the identification of causal allelesfor rare genetic diseases. There are two main strands to this: (i) identifying which variantsdiscovered in exome-seq appear to be having a functional impact on transcripts, and (ii)identifying transcript outliers, especially among known causal genes, that may not necessarilyhave a causal variant identified from exome sequencing. The latter may identify the presenceof causal variants that lie far from coding regions (e.g. the formation of cryptic splice sitesdeep within introns, or loss of long range regulatory elements), which can be confirmed withfurther targeted genetic assays. Just over 50% of all ... (Show More)
