Sequencing strategy

We have been refining library construction and targeted hybridization capture using both IDT and Twist probes.

Data processing

Any robust Illumina alignment and variant-calling pipeline should do the trick.

Regions of low coverage are masked with Ns. We are unlikely to be able to repeat processing of most low-coverage samples, so to strike a balance between maximizing sample coverage while still permitting downstream analysis to deal appropriately with uncertain regions, sequences are released with one of two coverage thresholds: 6x or 30x.

We will upload our processing pipeline soon
