BioDiscovery - Whole Genome Sequencing Tools
As described in Chaubey et al., Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, vol. 22, No. 6 June 2020, they used 10x WGS and validated that the NxClinical algorithm detected all CNVs and AOH that were found by high-resolution SNP arrays. Figure 2. shows a small exonic deletion detected using 10x WGS with the MSR algorithm. With higher depth NGS, smaller CNVs can be detected and integrated with sequence variants to provide a holistic view of the sample. In Figure 3., the ideogram shows regions of copy number gain (blue bars), loss (red bars), AOH (yellow shading), Allelic Imbalance (purple shading), as well as various types of Sequence Variants (e.g., SNV, In/Del, etc.) as colored “lollipops”.
