paired-end sequencing

A new study shows that combining size-based and count-based analysis helps determine whether a copy number aberration originates in the mother, fetus, or both.

Exome sequences and copy number patterns suggest lung adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are each marked by specific somatic mutations and driver genes.

The high-quality assembly contains clues to carotenoid pigment accumulation and past evolutionary events in the carrot-containing euasterid II clade.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – By tapping pooled, paired-end sequencing data for hundreds of individuals sequenced through the 1000 Genomes Project, a Case Western Reserve University-led team has identified hundreds of relatively common insertion or deletion variants not included in the human reference g
