OperationDefinition: Find Population Structural Subsuming Variants

Official URL: Version: 3.0.1-SNAPSHOT
Active as of 2024-07-15 Computable Name: FindPopulationStructuralSubsumingVariants

Retrieve count or list of patients having structural subsuming variants in specified regions.


Retrieve count or list of patients having structural subsuming variants in specified regions. (See section 'Genes vs. Regions' for the distinction between variants that 'intersect' vs. 'subsume' a region).

A patient meets numerator criteria if they have at least one structural variant subsuming a given range.

Population queries are designed to return a count of patients that match each item sought, with or without a list of patients matching the item(s) sought.

Generated Narrative: OperationDefinition find-population-structural-subsuming-variants



List of regions to be searched for variants. Must be in zero-based RefSeq:Integer-range format (e.g. 'NC_000007.14:55174721-55174820').


Enables an App to limit results to those that are 'germline' or 'somatic'. Default is to include variants irrespective of genomic source class.


Include list of matching patients if set to true. Default=false.

A pharmacogeneticist is studying the accuracy of CYP2D6*5 (whole gene deletion) calling, and wants to compare cases where a structural variant caller indicates a whole gene deletion of CYP2D6 (NC_000022.10:42522500-42526812) against a pipeline used to report pharmacogenes.

To begin the process, the pharmacogeneticist identifies all patients that have structural variants subsuming CYP2D6.
