Currently, there are various types of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) instruments available in the market. Some of the well-known NGS platforms include Illumina HiSeq and NovaSeq series, Thermo Fisher Ion Torrent, Pacific Biosciences SMRT sequencing, and Oxford Nanopore Technologies nanopore sequencing devices. Each sequencing platform is characterized by its unique chemistry to analyze DNA sequences. They […]
DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification that involves the addition of a methyl group (-CH3) to DNA molecules. This process usually occurs throughout specific regions of the DNA known as CpG sites, where cytosine (C) is followed by a guanine (G) in the DNA sequence. CpG sites are often clustered in regions called CpG islands, […]
The CancerScreen Comprehensive panel consists total of 765 genes enabling highly accurate and comprehensive analysis for identifying significant mutations and variants for solid tumors.
What is exome? The exome refers to the complete set of protein-coding regions in the human genome. Exome accounts for only 1.5% of the human genome, while the remaining regions are composed of various types of non-coding DNA, such as transposons, repeats, and other elements. Some non-coding DNA regions are known to have important […]
The performance of the target capture panel can be evaluated using various metrics and below are few examples for defining the performance: 1. Coverage There are two types of coverage: depth of coverage and breadth of coverage. Depth of coverage (usually abbreviated as ‘depth’) refers to the average number of reads that aligned to […]
Bioinformatics is the intersection of computer science, statistics and biology used to collect, store, organize and analyze life science data. Using these techniques, a large amount of data produced from NGS equipment can be rapidly and effectively analyzed to obtain useful human-readable data. A typical analysis pipeline used for NGS data analysis is as follows. […]
