Sources of Error and the Role of Replicates in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:7/16/2014

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have rapidly improved sequencing fidelity and substantially decreased sequencing error rates. However, given that there are billions of nucleotides in a human genome, even low experimental error rates yield many errors in variant calls. Erroneous variants can mimic true somatic and rare variants, thus requiring costly confirmatory experiments to minimize the number of false positives.

Join presenter, Dr. Kim Robasky, Associate Director, Bioinformatics at EA | Quintiles, for an informative session that will include a Q&A with the audience.
