ACE Augmentation Achieves High-Sensitivity for Clinical Applications

Heather Wetzel, MS, LCGC discusses the recent publication in Genome Medicine entitled “Achieving high-sensitivity for clinical applications using augmented exome sequencing”. Heather will review the results from this first ever comparison of an augmented exome sequencing approach (ACE Clinical Exome) to other standard exomes and whole genome sequencing to evaluate their ability to reach a “clinical” standard of coverage of key medically important genes.
