Known Issues

1000 Genomes only has autosome data

In the 1000 Genomes dataset, there are no variants stored for X, Y or Mt chromosomes.

Maximum genomic range

The maximum total genomic range that may be queried is 200 Mb (but be patient — if you want results returned in seconds, keep your search range below 20 Mb.

Handling sparse metadata fields

If you search for samples, filtering on a field that only has data in a subset of samples, any samples that lack that field entirely are excluded. For example, a query for samples with “Age of Symptom Onset < 50” will exclude all samples for which “Age of Symptom Onset” has not been specified.

We are using GRCh37

All data is run against Human Genome assembly 37, not the more recent 38.
