3. Adding a Project as an AnnotationΒΆ

Any of the Projects, Reports, or Assessment Catalogs that are hosted on the VSWarehouse can be added as annotations to your VarSeq project. Adding a VSWarehouse project as an annotation, allows you to check which of the variants that your current project has in common with the previous projects. The same goes for assessment catalogs and reports which when stored on warehouse keep a record of every variant that has been previously reported along with any interpretation entered by the user.

  1. From the VSWarehouse management dialog, switch to the Annotations tab. Check the Cancer Gene Panel source and add it as an annotation. This allows us to see if any of the variants that were in previous sample sets share variants with the samples in our current project.

    Adding a VSWarehouse source as an annotation

    Figure 3-1: The annotations tab shows the VSWarehouse sources that are available to be added as an annotation.

    The Cancer Gene Panel will then appear in the table like any other annotation source, Figure 3-2. As you can see there are two variants that are in the current filtered set that have been seen previously. Both of the allele frequencies of the two matched variants are above 0.5 indicating that they are both common variants.
