1. Quantifying and Improving Clinical-grade Coverage and Accuracy using Augmented Exome Sequencing
Published: 7/16/2015
Authors: Justin M Zook, Anil Patwardhan, Marc L Salit, Carlos Bustamante, Euan Ashley, Michael Snyder, John West, Richard Chen
Abstract: Exome sequencing is increasingly used for the clinical evaluation of genetic disease, yet accuracy and coverage in medically interpretable parts of the genome remains under-characterized. We evaluate recently developed exome sequencing platforms in t ...
