Feb. 15, 2016. Improved filtering in Mutation Forecaster for Variant Effect Predictor

We have added new capabilities to Variant Effect Predictor. Exome sequencing reveals many variants that have little or no effect on phenotype. You can remove these variants in MutationForecaster with our new stringency filters. Different default levels of filtering are offered. These can also be customized based on allele frequencies, predicted SIFT, Polyphen, variant type (eg. synonymous change), or protein coding domain containing the variant.
