PreventionGenetics adopts Golden Helix CNV analysis

Partnership with Sentieon

Today, I am happy to announce the introduction of VS-CNV for Gene Panels and Exomes. We have developed this capability in partnership with PreventionGenetics. PreventionGenetics will use VarSeq CNV for analysis of gene panels, and in the future for exome sequencing. The software gives PreventionGenetics the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive CNV analysis on NGS data, in many cases eliminating the need… Read more »

This new dataset includes variants obtained from 123,136 exome sequences and 15,496 whole-genome sequences. In comparison to the original ExAC dataset which contained exomes… Read more »
