2010) used WGS in a single individual combined with linkage analysis to identify the gene mutated in metachondromatosis (MC), another autosomal dominant disorder (Sobreira et al. 2010). 8). Following WGS of a single proband, no variants unique to her and with a high likelihood of functional significance were found in five of these regions. However, one such variant was located in the 12q23 candidate region and was shown to be present in all affected individuals as well as the 26 F. Lantieri et al.

Genes with potential relevance to NPC and their biochemical functions were the subject of a review by Chou and coworkers (Chou et al. 2008). These genes can be clustered into biochemical pathways with specific functions, and this has allowed a pathway-based approach to both define the universe of potentially associated genes and facilitate the analytical process (Jorgensen et al. 2009; Thomas et al. 2009a). EBV-related host genes have been the favored genes for interrogation in most of the more recent CGAS.

Using the results from a logistic regression model which incorporated the five risk factors, Allen-Brady et al. (2011) classified all individuals as either high-covariate subjects whose nongenetic risk factors are highly predictive of their affection status or low-covariate subjects whose nongenetic risk factors are poorly predictive of their affection status. They found that selecting for exome sequencing all affected individuals classified as low-covariate and possessing a linked haplotype identified in the linkage analysis was the most reliable strategy across both recessive and dominant models.
