A screening approach to identify clinically actionable variants causing congenital heart disease in exome data

Abstract:

Background: Congenital heart disease (CHD)—structural abnormalities of the heart that arise during embryonic development—is the most common inborn malformation, affecting ≤1% of the population. However, currently, only a minority of cases can be explained by genetic abnormalities. The goal of this study was to identify disease-causal genetic variants in 30 families affected by CHD.

Methods: Whole-exome sequencing was performed with the DNA of multiple family members. We utilized a ...
