Whole Genome Study for De Novo Mutation Rates

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs001055 Parent-Offspring Trios

Study Description

Germline mutations are the source of evolution and contribute substantially to many health-related processes. In this study, we use whole genome deep sequencing data from parents-offspring trios to examine the de novo point mutations (DNMs) in the offspring.

We studied correlation between parental ages with de novo mutation rates. This study is published in Wong WS, Solomon BD, Bodian DL, Kothiyal P, Eley G, Huddleston KC, Baker R, Thach DC, Iyer RK, Vockley JG, Niederhuber JE. New observations on maternal age effect on germline de novo mutations. Nat Commun. 2016 Jan 19;7:10486 (PMID: 26781218. Also, we studied differences in molecular signatures in paternal versus maternal origin of de novo mutations. This study is published in Jakob M. Goldmann, Wendy S.W.
