For US20140088942 entitled "Molecular genetic diagnostic system", filed 09/27/2012, it seems that the same general approach to prioritizing DNA variants for further analysis was laid out (and computationally implemented) several years earlier in the first papers applying exome sequencing to families. For example: http://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v42/n1/full/ng.499.html and http://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v42/n9/full/ng.646.html from 2010.
