1000 genomes is so yesterday

Genotypes frequencies of the popultation are the most powerfull filter for rare mutations, we all know that. That’s also why we had the genotype frequency filter that was based on the 1000 genomes data right from the beginning. If you set this filter to let’s say 0.5 you reduced your vcf file to genotypes that had a frequency below 5 out of one thousand reference individuals. Now this filter has become even more powerful, because we included the recent data from the 5000 exomes project:
