Applying a New Exome Sequencing Method in Medical and Translational Research

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 20, 2015) - On Friday, October 23, 2015, a new webinar presented by Roche NimbleGen (hosted by Xtalks), will discuss the use of the SeqCap EZ MedExome Target Enrichment Kit from Roche and other methods at Yale Center for Genome Analysis (YCGA). The keynote speaker will be Dr. Shrikant Mane, Director at Yale Center for Genome Analysis.

Exons make up approximately 2% of the genome, yet contribute to 85% of known Mendelian diseases. With the needs to improve coverage of the medically relevant regions and gain more confidence in variant calling, the research community continues to raise the bar when evaluating the performance of an exome in medical and translational research.

Dr. Mane will also discuss:

  • Specific metrics used to evaluate performance of MedExome
  • The bioinformatics pipeline used to determine the metrics
  • Specific case studies and conditions where MedExome has improved utility
