Frequently Asked Questions About Our Products And Services


coverage

For SNP calling in heterozygote organisms we recommend at least 30x coverage. A higher coverage will increase the confidence of SNP calling. Confidently discovering genetic variants in inhomogeneous samples, such as DNA extracted from normal and tumour cells, requires higher overall coverage. The amount of data needed to reach a certain coverage on the DNA of interest depends on the ratio of normal-to-tumour DNA. Please note that due to varying efficiency of the enrichment baits, the targeted regions are not covered evenly (see below).
