Using SVA Analysis functions


Analysis functions allow researchers to consider the genomic context and potential functional consequences of variants, in order to help identify the genetic variants that are associated with or responsible for the biological traits or medical outcomes of interest. Some analysis functions also use statistical calculations to determine trends that might otherwise be difficult to extract from whole genome sequence data.

Analysis functions are found under the 'Analysis' menu in SVA. Analysis functions output .txt or .csv files.

In the following pages, the following 'Analysis' functions will be introduced:

1. Gene Prioritization

2. Variant Prioritization

3. Fisher's exact test
