Benchmarks for genome sequencing

Published

Author(s)

Justin M. Zook, Marc L. Salit

Abstract

In this issue, Griffith et al. present one of the most comprehensive genome-sequence data sets to date from a patient with myeloid leukemia, including sequencing of normal tissue, primary cancer, and a relapse. Their raw data from a variety of sequencing methods along with a set of validated somatic variant calls provide a valuable resource that can be used to benchmark somatic mutation calling. Benchmarking against resources such as this will let “Next Generation Sequencing” be used for clinical decision making with confidence.
