Identify and Annotate Variants (WES-HD)

The Identify and Annotate Variants (WES-HD) tool should be used to identify and annotate variants in one sample. The tool consists of a workflow that is a combination of the Identify Variants and the Annotate Variants workflows.

The tool runs an internal workflow, which starts with mapping the sequencing reads to the human reference sequence. Then it runs a local realignment to improve the variant detection, which is run afterwards. After the variants have been detected, they are annotated with gene names, amino acid changes, conservation scores, information from clinically relevant variants present in the ClinVar database, and information from common variants present in the common dbSNP, HapMap, and 1000 Genomes database. Furthermore, a targeted region report is created to inspect the overall coverage and mapping specificity.
