Excluding variants from search based on Patient study codes

When doing our own variant analysis, we often seek variants that shared between affected individuals, and we already provide this capability using the 'shared' filter. We recently added a new filter to take this search one step further by removing variants found in the unaffected individuals (usually from the same family). There is a new textbox called 'Exclude variants' where users can add patient study codes to exclude the variants found in these individuals from the variants found in the other individuals in a single search operation. Keep in mind, that each person will carry thousands of variants, so filtering in this way can be quite slow if no other filters are applied. So it is recommended that users apply as many filters as possible to narrow the search before using this functionality.
