The GBS allows you to determine whether your candidate list of genes has been affected by any large-scale genomic events. These events have been shown to have massive functional roles in disease so rapid interrogation is key to rapid diagnosis.
Overlapping genomic blocks can be the product of agreement between different tools for calling genomic blocks within a single individual, or they can be overlapping between different individuals for the same or different methods.
Searching for all blocks within a specific set of genomic coordinates allows you to determine all important blocks in your area of interest. Many conditions are closely tied with a specific genomic location so being able to narrow your search greatly increases the chance of finding your answer rapidly.
Storing genome blocks in the GBS enables rapid integration of genomic block information with short nucleotide variants in Seave. If a short variant in a sample is within a genomic block stored in the GBS for that sample, the GBS hit is displayed along with the rest of the annotation for the variant allowing an unparalleled integration of genomic information.
