Roland Kuiper and colleagues conduct a whole-exome sequencing to individuals from families with multiple colonic adenomas, the premalignant precursors of colorectal cancer (CRC). They identified a homozygous germline nonsense mutation in the base-excision repair (BER) gene NTHL1 in three families with recessive inheritance of adenomatous polyposis.

What they say
about Alamut

"I have previously used Alamut Visual in the UK and it is an invaluable resource for variant curation which I was keen to bring into use in my new role in New Zealand. provides a convenient and user-friendly interface which pulls together literature searches, population databases and in silico prediction tools. This enables streamlining of the curation process and saves a lot of time."
