Sequencing 101: Understanding Accuracy in DNA Sequencing

Sequencing 101: Understanding Accuracy in DNA Sequencing

10 days ago   |   By Pacific Biosciences

For scientists who utilize DNA sequencing in their research but are not experts in the underlying technology, it can be difficult to determine the accuracy of sequencing results - and even harder to compare accuracy across sequencing platforms. Furthermore, accuracy differs not only between technologies but also across genomic regions as some stretches of the genome are inherently more difficult to read.
It is critically important to understand accuracy in DNA sequencing to distinguish important biological information from sequencing errors.
What are the Types of Sequencing Accuracy?
HiFi...
