Attacking a VUS from multiple angles: An integrated and functional approach for reclassifying variants of uncertain significance.

Reviewers' Choice Abstract

  • Large multi-gene panels are essential for the molecular diagnosis of rare neurodevelopmental disorders; however they can also result in numerous variants of uncertain significance.
  • Here we describe three effective approaches for reducing VUS rates in neurology MGPT.
  • Combining parental co-segregation studies, protein structural analysis, and RNA functional splicing assays with additional strong lines of evidence, leads to a significant decrease in VUS rates.
