1. OverviewΒΆ

VS Reports provides the ability to generate clinical-grade reports. This feature enables VarSeq users to create custom export formats to return to physicians or integrate with legacy systems. The most common output format is HTML, which can be easily saved as a PDF in VarSeq. However, other formats such as XML, JSON, and CSV can be targeted for output. In addition these reports can be branded and styled to match the documents that your lab produces.

The following tutorial illustrates how VarSeq users can integrate VSReports into their clinical workflows and effectively show users how to:

  • Walk through and explain the Report View Interface;
  • Create a record set to flag variants of interest;
  • Add a selected variant(s) from the Variant Table to VSReports
  • How to customize clinical reports and explain the VSReports layout;

The end result will be a new report template that can be used to create Clinical Reports in the future.

After the ZIP file has been downloaded, extract the contents to a convenient location. Then from VarSeq go to File > Open Project to select the saved project file. See Figure 1.


The original VCF file that was used to import the data into the supplied project can be download from our Data Repository through VarSeq by going to Tools > Manage Data Sources and selecting the YRI_Exome_Filtered3.vcf.gz file from the Example Samples > YRI Trio - 1000Genomes Phase3 folder and clicking Download in the lower left corner.
