Splicing Clinically Applicable Pathogenicity (S-CAP) Score




S-CAP is the first pathogenicity classifier designed to predict the pathogenicity of splice affecting variants in patient genomes with the high sensitivity required in the clinic. S-CAP combines sequenced-based features, evolutionary conservation, and existing metrics including SPIDEX, CADD, and LINSIGHT. S-CAP is comprised of 6 separate models, each designed to predict the pathogenicity of variants in a different splicing region, as is described in our paper. Further details can be found in our paper.

Splicing Region High sensitivity threshold
3' Intronic ≥ 0.006
3' Core Dominant ≥ 0.033
3' Core Recessive ≥ 0.264
Exonic ≥ 0.009
5' Core Dominant ≥ 0.034
5' Core Recessive ≥ 0.367
5' Extended ≥ 0.005
5' Intronic ≥ 0.006
