Best practices for the analytical validation of clinical whole-genome sequencing intended for the diagnosis of germline disease
October 23 • Nature, UK
Understanding performance in difficult regions of the genome is important for accurately representing the limitations of the assay, and setting benchmarks against which new analytical tools and methods can be developed. The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) Benchmarking Team recently developed tools to evaluate performance in this way.
