The authors thank members of the Institute for Genomic Medicine, Columbia University (B. Copeland, S. Kamalakaran, B. Krueger, and R. Padmanabhan), and Matt McKevitt of Gilead Sciences, Inc., for ongoing commitment that enables this work. S.P. is a National Health and Medical Research Council Career Development Fellowship fellow. The authors also thank the NHLBI GO Exome Sequencing Project and its ongoing studies, which produced and provided exome variant calls for comparison: the Lung Grand Opportunity (GO) Sequencing Project (HL-102923), the Women's Health Initiative Sequencing Project (HL-102924), the Broad GO Sequencing Project (HL-102925), the Seattle GO Sequencing Project (HL-102926), and the Heart GO Sequencing Project (HL-103010). In addition, the authors thank the Exome Aggregation Consortium and the groups that provided exome variant data for comparison.
