Accurate detection of low frequency genetic variants using novel, molecular tagged sequencing adapters

Precision medicine for oncology requires accurate and sensitive molecular characterization. However, sample degradation, polymerase errors, and sequencing errors reduce accuracy for sequencing genetic variants. By incorporating molecular tagged adapters in target enrichment, and using DNA probes that deliver extremely even and deep coverage, we are able to demonstrate a 300-fold reduction in false positives at or above 0.25% variant frequency. In this presentation, Dr Mirna Jarosz discusses these methods and how they can significantly reduce error rates in your sequencing data.
