We evaluate the potential for routine WGS using ONT by sequencing the well-characterised reference sample NA12878 and the genome of an individual with ataxia-pancytopenia syndrome accompanied by severe immune dysregulation.

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is becoming widely used in clinical medicine in diagnostic contexts and to inform treatment choice. While current sequencing technologies have been extremely successful, their reliance on short read lengths necessarily involves some limitations: accurately assaying certain genomic regions and classes of variation can be problematic. Recent advances in throughput and cost have made WGS using the Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) MinION long-read single-molecule sequencer a potential solution to these challenges. Here we evaluate the potential for routine WGS using ONT by sequencing the well-characterised reference sample NA12878 and the genome of an individual with ataxia-pancytopenia syndrome accompanied by severe immune dysregulation, to 82× and 30× respectively. For NA12878, we evaluated single-nucleotide variant (SNV) calls based on data from multiple base-calling algorithms. We demonstrate that phasing metrics from a novel, reference panel-free, long-read-based method can improve variant-calling performance from otherwise modest levels, resulting ... (Show More)
