A study was conducted using whole exome sequencing (WES) to identify underlying pathogenic variants, or likely pathogenic variants, in 1,000 diagnostic cases from 54 different countries. Patients selected displayed a wide variety in the number, nature and severity of symptoms. Clinical information…
Validation of a Semiconductor Next-Generation Sequencing Assay for the Clinical Genetic Screening of CFTR
Genetic testing for cystic fibrosis and CFTR-related disorders mostly relies on laborious molecular tools that use Sanger sequencing to scan for mutations in the CFTR gene. We have explored a more efficient genetic screening strategy based on next-generation sequencing of the CFTR gene.
