    Panel Validation using NA12878 DNA

    Hi there,

    we have made a panel that comprises several (190) exonic alterations and now we want to test how capable are we to call these variants starting from a DNA sample. This post is for retrieve suggestions about how can we do this and/or to know if my approach is not correct.

    Basically what I have been thinking about is purchasing NA12878 DNA from Coriell Institute, sequencing it and running a variant calling pipeline (without going into details, mapping vs GRCh37 and call variants with mpileup). Once I have the variants, check them vs the high-confidence calls set focusing on my 190 exonic alterations and if the alleles matches at these positions would mean that we call these variants correctly.

    Is this a correct way?

    Previously, aiming to evaluate just the bioinformatic pipeline and not the laboratory part, I did the same analysis with the GIAB NA12878 dataset (HiSeq x300) and checked the output variants with this callset ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/giab/ftp/...ransfer.vcf.gz available at the GIAB ftp site. Previously I normalized the variants representation of both calls sets using *vcflib vcfallelicprimitives*.

    And a last question. For my validation purpose, is there any difference between purchasing the NIST reference DNA and purchasing the Coriell Institute DNA Sample? I think it's the same, but look the difference in prices...

    Any suggestion will be welcome

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
