Allele subset information

In Ion Reporter™ Software, a data column labeled Subset can be used to determine whether alleles are present at a variant locus in either analysis results that are viewed as either Allele View or Locus View.

In Locus View, the following applies:

The subset column indicates that an allele, which is part of a larger variant that has been called, is present (the superset). The format is subset index (superset index). The larger variant can be found by using the value of the superset index counting into the alleles listed in the Observed Allele column. The subset id can be a hotspot id or a number. If it is a number and not a hotspot id then it is also an index counting in the alleles listed in the Observed Allele column. The subset allele always will match one of alleles without a genotype. A special case is that two superset indices might be present, in which case both indices are displayed and are separated by a foward slash (/).

In Allele View, the following applies:

The subset column indicates that an allele, which is part of a larger variant that has been called, is present (the superset). The format is "SupersetID" which will be a name for the superset variant. A special case is that two superset indices might be present, in which case both indices are displayed and are separated by a forward slash (/).
