Part 4 in this Genomic Series will cover the sources of experimental errors in NGS and better understand how replicates can be used to abate such errors in reducing the noise in data processing and in downstream analysis. The live broadcast takes place on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 1pm EDT.

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.
