Predictive relatedness, sex and ancestry reports

We've recently added a new step in our pipeline to use the genetic data to predict the degree of relatedness, sex and ancestry. This is particularly useful as a quality check to spot potential sample mix ups, poor DNA quality, contamination, errors in patient details provided etc. In the event of a possible error, users are automatically notified with the reports attached in the email for further investigation. We are currently running the reports retrospectively for all of our previous data sets and have already found a some data entry errors. In such cases, we may want to rerun the pipeline analysis as such errors can affect the variant prioritization. These reports are also available as downloads in the 'datasets' section.
