Publication notes superiority of NxClinical software for CNV detection from low pass sequencing

Low Pass Genome Sequencing (LP-GS) for detection of CNVs as a replacement to constitutional microarray analysis. The team evaluated a number of different tools and found NxClinical to have superiority in CNV detection and classification.

Did you catch the PerkinElmer Genomics' webinar on their new CNGnome test using NxClinical for analysis & interpretation?

Using a combination of genomic sequencing technologies and bioinformatic tools, PerkinElmer Genomics is paving the way to replace traditional microarray analyses for constitutional genomics with NGS. Dr. Alka Chaubey, PerkinElmer Genomics, presented development and validation of the new CNGnome™ Test and comparison to traditional CMA. Dr. Chaubey also discusses how NxClinical was selected for use with their new assay and shows how the software was invaluable in the interpretation process.

Phenotype risk scores identify patients with unrecognized Mendelian disease patterns

A recent Science article, "Phenotype risk scores identify patients with unrecognized Mendelian disease patterns", from Vanderbilt University Medical Center leverages the phenotypic patterns of Mendelian diseases to detect rare-variant associations and finds that most of the individuals with statistically significant variants were undiagnosed with the target Mendelian disease.
