Variant calls for "Quality of Whole Genome Sequencing from Blood versus Saliva Derived DNA in Cardiac Patients"

Dataset ID Technology Samples
EGAD00001005772 N/A 10

Dataset Description

Paired blood and saliva samples from five unrelated individuals were directly compared for quality of whole genome sequencing. Two (Sample Pairs 1 and 2) were female probands diagnosed with tetralogy of Fallot, a type of congenital heart disease, and three (Sample Pairs 3, 4 and 5) were male probands diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. WGS was performed using Illumina HiSeq X to a target average coverage depth of 30x and a read length of 150 bp. The resulting reads were not filtered for minimum quality in order to avoid losing possible contaminant reads. Sequencing read alignment was done using Isaac Aligner to human genome build hg19. Short variant i.e. single-nucleotide variant (SNV) and small insertion-deletion (indel) calling was performed using Isaac Variant Caller with default parameters.
