Whole Genome Mapping… Now in HD
Most nucleotides involved in human genomic variation are part of structural variants. SVs are not called reliably by NGS. High definition whole genome mapping uses electronic detection to generate high-density maps with sub-diffraction- limit resolution. This information can be used to call SVs with high sensitivity and specificity in a pipelined way.
