MYH7 non-truncating variants in DCM cohorts

The table below lists the 44 rare (MAF<0.0001 in ExAC) non-truncating MYH7 variants identified in a cohort of 756 DCM patients. When this rare variant frequency of 0.05820 is compared with a background population rate of 0.01350, there is a statistically significant case excess of 0.04470 (p<0.0001), which suggests that approximately 34 of these variants may be pathogenic.
