5000Exomes filters

These filters can be added to filter chains to detect minor allele frequencies (MAF) for specific population groups in Ion Reporter™ Software. The filters are derived from the 5000Exomes annotation database. The specific filters are:

  • 5000Exomes AfricanAmerican MAF

  • 5000Exomes EuropeanAmerican MAF

  • 5000Exomes Global MAF

Filter conditions include the ability to set minor allele frequency ranges from 0.0 to 0.5, to include or exclude boundary values in the range, and to include or exclude unannotated variants in filtered analysis results.

The filter returns minor allele frequency results in samples that align with the 5000Exomes minor allele frequency database.
