MYBPC3 non-truncating variants in DCM cohorts

The table below lists the 20 rare (MAF<0.0001 in ExAC) non-truncating MYBPC3 variants identified in a cohort of 756 DCM patients. When this rare variant frequency of 0.02646 is compared with a background population rate of 0.01884, there is a case excess of 0.00762, although this is not statistically significant for non-truncating MYBPC3 variants in DCM (p=0.1278).
