——————-

Exome sequencing provides a cost-effective alternative to whole genome sequencing as it targets only the protein coding region of the human genome responsible for a majority of known disease related variants. Whether you are conducting studies in rare Mendelian disorders, complex disease, cancer research, or human population studies, Novogene’s comprehensive human whole exome sequencing service provides a high-quality, affordable and convenient solution.

Novogene’s bioinformatics analysis includes data QC, mapping with reference genome, SNP/InDel, somatic SNP/InDel calling, statistics and annotation. Novogene utilizes internationally recognized software in bioinformatics analysis, e.g. BWA, SAMtools, GATK, etc.

In particular, Novogene bioinformatics pipeline includes annotation with the exome aggregation consortium (ExAC). ExAC dataset spans 60,706 unrelated individuals sequenced as part of various disease-specific and population genetic studies. This population scale database greatly facilitates research of disease pathogenesis.

The Novogene Advantage

  • Unsurpassed data quality: We guarantee a Q30 score ≥80%, exceeding Illumina’s official guarantee of ≥75%. See our data example.
  • State-of-the-art exome capture: Agilent SureSelect Human All Exome V6 (58 M) is used.
  • Accurate variant calling with longer read length up to 150 bp.
  • Extraordinary informatics expertise: Novogene uses its cutting-edge bioinformatics pipeline and internationally recognized best-in-class software to provide customers with “publication-ready data”.
