In the last weeks, we worked on a number of features and improvements. The most important new feature is the Inhertiance Filter for VCF files which allows you to filter your VCF file for dominant, homozygous recessive, or compound heterozygous genotypes (see the screenshot below).

Other new features include:

  • An overview for the selected filter settings (see screenshot)
  • You can easily contact authors of annotations by sending a GeneTalk message (look out the for envelope icon next to the user name)
  • You can search for genes and single positions in Search GeneTalk
  • GeneTalk stores the filter settings in the VCF file using lines beginning with ##GeneTalk:

    ##GeneTalk_Input_file=Inherit_test.vcf
    ##GeneTalk_Frequency_threshold=None
    ##GeneTalk_Linkage_filter=None
    ##GeneTalk_Geneset_filter=
    ##GeneTalk_Annotation_filter=None
    ##GeneTalk_Inheritance_filter=None
    ##GeneTalk_Filtered_at=Sat Feb 04 18:34:31 +0100 2012
    ##GeneTalk_Filtered_by=tom
