Motivation: In 2018 Google published an innovative variant caller, DeepVariant, which converts pileups of sequence reads into images and uses a deep neural network to identify single nucleotide variants and small insertion/deletions from next-generation sequencing data. This approach outperforms existing state-of-the-art tools. However, DeepVariant was designed to call variants within a single sample. In disease sequencing studies, the ability to examine a family trio, (father-mother-affected child), provides greater power for disease mutation discovery. Results: To further improve DeepVariant's variant calling accuracy in family-based sequencing studies, we have developed a family-based variant calling pipeline, dv-trio, which incorporates the trio information from the Mendelian genetic model into variant calling based on DeepVariant.
