Target enrichment has been a major driver behind the clinical adoption of next-generation sequencing (NGS) over the last decade because it simplifies analysis and provides a cost-effective method of massive parallel resequencing. It has not only replaced Sanger sequencing, but it is actively dispensing the need for parallel copy number variant (CNV) analysis using classic techniques.
In this webinar, Bekim Sadikovic of the London Health Sciences Centre will demonstrate the performance of Roche’s new KAPA Target Enrichment technology in custom gene panels.
Dr. Sadikovic’s team has streamlined a clinically validated and robust CNV detection algorithm using targeted NGS gene panel data from the Roche SeqCap EZ platform, which they have used to assess complex genomic regions, including pseudogenic DNA sequences and mitochondrial genome heteroplasmy.
In this webinar, Dr. Sadikovic will share details of his team’s evaluation of the new KAPA technology in custom gene panels, including hereditary oncology, mitochondrial disorders, and Charcot-Marie Tooth disease, by using samples previously tested in his lab.
