Christopher Smith and colleagues report on a patient from a consanguineous family presenting with phenotype resembled a skeletal ciliopathy. Due to the presence of parental consanguinity, they analysed the candidate gene WDR35 by sequencing of all coding exons and focused their analyses on homozygous recessive mutations. They identified a novel homozygous nonsynonymous variant in WDR35, p.Trp1153Cys.

"We have found Alamut to be an immensely useful tool, and would recommend Alamut to anyone looking for a powerful yet straightforward software program that is able to accurately catalogue and evaluate mutations."
