Manage Cases/Add Family Members to a Case

Add Family Members for Trio Analysis

Add the analysis results of parents and siblings to a proband case to provide additional data for family-based filtering.

1. Import an analysis result for the proband and each family member.

You can import the files individually or in a batch with a manifest that contains metadata for all files in the batch. For information about importing VCF files, see Import Variant Call Files.

2. Open each case and edit the metadata as needed.
The Sample Class in each case must be set to Germline.
The Sex of each subject must be set to Male or Female.
An optional Family ID can be added to each case.
3. From the proband case, enter the subject ID of each family member and set their affection status.

After saving changes, an associated analysis for each family member is added to the proband case.
