|Abstract:||Depending on the method used, rare sequence variants adjacent to the SNP of interest may cause unusual genotyping results. Therefore, a European proficiency study was organised to assess their influence on the laboratory results. The rare mutations were reported as "usual" genotypes in more than 50 % of cases, 21 % were attributed to technical issues and only 24.3 % were correctly identified. Of note, allele-specific amplification based PCR had a much higher error rate than other methods (18.3 % vs. 2.9 %). In conclusion, only a limited number of the participants could recognize and adequately report rare SNPs resulting in unusual genotyping results.|
