Next-generation sequencing has enabled clinicians and researchers alike to identify novel genetic variants associated with rare Mendelian Diseases across the human genome. To help enable researchers and clinicians understand the role of CNVs in human health and disease, Golden Helix has integrated a specialized NGS-based CNV caller capable of detecting deletion and duplication events as small as single-exons and as large as whole chromosome aneuploidy events. In this webcast, we will present our workflows that integrates the NGS-based CNV caller into SVS.
