Technical Information
Test Procedure: Help
Genomic DNA is extracted from the submitted sample, enriched for select regions using a hybridization protocol, and sequenced using Illumina Next Generation Sequencing. Sequence data is aligned to a reference genome, and variants are identified using a suite of bioinformatic tools designed to detect single nucleotide variants, small insertions/deletions, copy … View more
Test Confirmation: Help
Likely pathogenic and pathogenic variants, including single nucleotide variants, insertions and deletions, and structural variants, are confirmed by an alternative technology according to Color’s internal protocols. Certain exceptions apply: variants will not be confirmed if, after testing, there is insufficient DNA available for secondary confirmation, and variants called at high … View more
