Gene Prioritization in Regions of Homozygosity in NxClinical

Learn how you can use NxClinical software to quickly prioritize genes that might be related to the phenotype associated with the sample.

DNA for data storage?

DNA’s data density and stability (fossil DNA that is hundreds of thousands of years old can be decoded) make it a great candidate for long-term data storage.

Integrated View of Copy Number and Sequence Variants

Users of Nexus Copy Number know that the software can analyze data from microarray and NGS to get copy number results. However, not everyone is aware that it can also load NGS sequence variants from a .vcf file and integrate them with the copy number events.

What are systematic correction files?

Sometimes a wave-like pattern is seen in the probe distribution across chromosomes. This artifact can affect the accuracy of calls. Systematic correction based on GC content of the probe sequence and its neighborhood can be applied to minimize this problem.

Sample Attributes: How adding annotation can streamline your workflow

NxClinical allows for the upload of annotation information in the form of Sample Attributes. These pre-defined fields allow for inclusion of any and all information.
